A cup full of passion and compassion

Three Generations, one passion. 

A deep love for quality coffee brought the Borgonovo family from Italy to El Salvador to set up a coffee estate in the Balsamo/Quezaltepec mountain range. This family-owned farm grows fine, flavourful coffee while ensuring that the ecology, community and workforce are well cared-for.
