Farm Information 

Finca El Manzano, founded in 1872, had belonged to Emilio Lopez Diaz’s family for
generations. In 2005, he expanded the operation by replanting new varieties to the farm and by building Beneficio El Manzano .The new cultivars and production facility gave Emilio the opportunity to experiment with different processes as well as the ability explore the different characteristics that the other cultivars have to offer. This degree of cultivation and control of the process has been at the forefront of what makes

Finca El Manzano is so special. Coffee from El Manzano has contributed to three national barista championships and first and second place finishes in the 2018 El Salvador CoE.

The SL-34 variety was discovered by Scott Labs, a company that was hired by the Kenyan government in the 1930’s to survey and catalogue coffee varieties that were suited to commercial development. During that study two varieties were selected for development in Kenya, the SL-28 and the SL-34. Like its more famous counterpart, the SL-34 delivers in complex flavors that are typically associated with fine Kenyan coffee. This variety tends to do a bit better at slightly lower elevations than the SL-28.
