Now in their sixth generation, brothers Enrique, Rene and Gustavo are running the farm with their father Gustavo still involved as an advisor, giving them the benefit of his experience. Over the years, they have placed in the finals for Cup of Excellence 7 times, as well as gaining accolades from trade bodies and national associations such as Exporter of the Year in 2015 and landing in the top 5 in 2017.

Coffee on this 140-hectare farm has recently been awarded the Denomination of Origin (DO). Certification is given by the cuppers from the Salvadoran Coffee Council under the SCA standards in order to guarantee quality and characteristics of coffee from a geographical region from the Central part of El Salvador which includes the Balsamo Quetzaltepeq Mountain Range and the San Salvador Volcano.

All the Urrutias Estate coffees are 100% shade-grown and native trees are planted every year to prevent erosion. The main trees which are grown are the Izote and the Copalchi which also act as a natural wind barrier.

This is the 2nd washed El Salvador we’ve had here at Fond Coffee and we are currently using it as our house espresso in our shop in Canterbury. This is tasting beautiful in milk but it is also lovely on its own.
