Notes: Chocolate, raisin, biscuit Rolando Ramirez Moreno and his family have long been in the coffee business: he is the third generation to farm coffee in the green hills of El Salvador?s Apaneca-Illamatepec region. In 2005/6, Rolando (operating under the company name of Cayro, S.A. de C.V.) decided to deepen his commitment to El Salvador?s coffee culture even further. Like so many coffee farms in the region ? indeed in El Salvador ? Finca San Jos? had been virtually abandoned for many years. Years of coffee price volatility combined with the appearance of coffee leaf rust in the region has made farming coffee a losing proposition in many producers? eyes. San Jos? was an old farm that had changed hands on many occasions, with very little love being spent despite its ideal location. Rolando, however, saw the farm?s potential!As part of his wider growth plan, he acquired the farm and immediately set about renovating 50 hectares of the farm?spoorly maintained coffee trees. The farm kept its original name ? but everything else changed. Today, the farm is managed with precision and care and with the utmost attention to detail. Integral management is carried out throughout the year with a group of 10 permanent staff and 95 temporary staff. Rolando, of course, oversees all the work.
