About this coffee :

Jorge Raul Rivera founded the farm with his brother, Jose Roberto, in 1979.

When El Salvador hosted its first Cup of Excellent in 2003, Jorge and Jose finally planted the coffee farm they had originally imagined, taking advantage of this clean state, and planted Pacamara. They also retained plenty of their forest to provide the necessary shade for coffee trees in the region's hot and dry climate. Many visitors comment on the unique landscape of this farm as most of the shade come from pines and resembles more of a Scandinavian forest than a tropical, Central American coffee farm.

In 2003, Santa Rosa placed first in the CoE and this achievement gave Jorge the opportunity to start getting international popularity.

Jorge travels a lot due to his work in coffee and for a few years Sasa and Jorge had many mutual friends but didn't know each other. But after some email correspondence they finally met each other in 2015 at Seattle.

After a few months Sasa visited Jorge in El Salvador and together they had the idea to create an auction to help the producers of the area connect with international buyers. Sasa kept his word and in 2016 Project Origin organised their first 'Best of El Salvador' auction that included the participation of more than 60 producers. This auction continues to run every year now!
