The clay type of soil of this farm combined with the 50% natural shade creates a very rich and cold environment for coffee plants to develop. Villa Galicia is one of the few farms in El Salvador you can actually walk on. It has very few slopes and it’s mostly flat. It sits at 1500masl in a very humid and windy area.
Mauricio let’s his trees develop up to 2mts tall and the soil it’s left untouched so it’s all covered by fallen leaves and other organic matter. This helps protect the roots system by keeping humidity and organic production of fertile components.
