El Salvador, Finca El Ingenio

Juan Urrutia planted the first coffee trees in the volcanic soil of Apaneca Ilamatepec in 1875, and 6 generations later, the estate is run by Enrique, Rene and Gustavo, with their father, Gustavo, still offering advice gleamed from his years of Cup of Excellence and trade body accolades.

All the coffee on the estate is shade grown, and native trees are planted yearly to prevent erosion. The Rainforest Alliacnce certified estate is home to a plethora of migratory birds and resident mammals, and sits within a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Along with developing their own exporting company the family also operate their own wet mill utilising water from the nearby San Antonio river. Washed coffees are subject to precision depulpers whilst natural lots, such as this, enjoy a slow drying on sunny patios.

Environmental Impact

All our packaging should be recycled in domestic curbside recycling or at your local recycling centre.

We are almost a waste free business & constantly track and measure our waste and impact on the environment.


We have specifically sourced our packing so it can be recycled.

Our coffee bags are made from LDPE - 4, which can be taken anywhere that recycles plastic bags (supermarkets & council sites). Everything else we use can be put in domestic curbside recycling.


We roast once a week in batches to reduce our carbon footprint. So your coffee might not arrive the next day.

Direct Trade

Whilst Fairtrade (TM) is a great, we believe directly buying from producers means all the money goes to straight to them.
