Finca San Ernesto is part of Urrutia's Estate Coffee, a family business dating back to the 1870's when Mr. Juan Urrutia S. an eminent and visionary Salvadoran farmer, pioneered the cultivation of the Arabica Bourbon variety of coffee in El Salvador, starting a tradition that is proudly continued nowadays.

We have the SHG (Strictly High Grown 1400 - 1850m asl) Bourbon & Paca varieties, the signature varieties of the region. They are shade grown amongst a luxuriant selection of native trees, Pepeto, Cuje Negro, Gravileo etc. In fact right alongside the coffee plantation is an area of more than 200 Ha of virgin forest, which is so crucial to the local microclimate that UNESCO has declared it a Biosphere Reserve.
