The Las Brumas farm have an area of 30 hectares of virgin mountain from 1700 to 2000 masl at the Canton Tunalmiles part of Sonsonate Department near the area known as San Blas “Las Brumas”. Las Brumas translates to "The Mists", which is an apt name. as the farm is often covered in coolign mists during the early mornings. This cool weather allows the coffee plants to slowly mature and develop their fruit, allowing for more natural sugars and character to be developed. The lands also has very deep and fertile volcanic soils, which have been generated over the past decades by different Ilamatepec volcano eruptions. Volcanic soil is incredibly rich with nutrients for the plants, which ultimately contributes to the amazing flavours developed within the fruit.
