Found at 1350-1450 meters above sea level, combined with the different and magical minerals that volcanic soil has to offer, the coffee plantation is located in the western part of El Salvador at the mountain range Apaneca Ilamatepec Cordillera.
The Coffee Plantation is the home of part of El Salvador´s wildlife. This coffee grows under the shadow of Pepeta, Cedar and Mahogany trees and shelters animals such as armadillos, wild cats, deer and many others.
Finca la Dalia began in the early 1900´s with Abraham Guillen who was better known by his grandchildren as “Papi Ian”. Abraham had one vision that was to produce El Salvador´s best coffee. With it he searched for the perfect land to achieve it.
Having the ideal land to achieve his goal, Abraham decided to begin the marvellous adventure of growing, producing and commercializing coffee beans. Due to his enormous effort and the way he transmitted his vision to his workers Abraham received several prizes from different parts of the world for his impeccable coffee.
Finca La Dalia follows a long tradition in producing coffee, becoming part of the most important agricultural sector of El Salvador.
The coffee is exported under the brand “CUYANAUZUL” which is a Maya word that means snake of fire. Cuyanauzul is the name of the area where Finca La Dalia is located in El Salvador. The legend says that the ancestors named the area this because they saw fire and hot water pass under the earth in a form of a snake. Now we know that what they used to see was lava from the volcanos near the farms and also the geysers or hot springs that pass nearby.
