FINCA SAN ANTONIO AMATEPEQUE
Finca San Antonio Amatepec was founded in 1970 purchasing 35 manzanas (24.5 hectares). The land was dedicated to grow Jaragua grass for cattle and only had two trees, one Zapote tree and a Hawthorn tree. In that year Mr. Carlos Antonio Boza Dreyfus owner of the farm, decided to turn this land into a coffee farm, he began to plant it with the Bourbon Elite varietal. In the next years to come, he continue buying more neighboring land and planting more Bourbon and Pacas. Now a day Finca San Antonio Amatepec totalize an area of 150 mz (105 hectares)
Located in el Cerro San Jacinto, just in the border of San Salvador, Finca San Antonio Amatepec is a unique place with luxuriant Forrest of pine trees and Inga’s, have a very harmonious climate to grow coffee. In the mountain house at the top of the mountain the farm has one of the most impressive views of the Ilopango Lake and the eastern part of San Salvador city, I have ever seen.
