Finca Hungria & Rumania are sister farms located next to each other in Santa Ana, El Salvador. These farms are owned by the Lima Family, a third-generation coffee business. When Mr. Lima founded these farms in the 1930s, he had an affinity to Europe and decided to name the farms after countries that he visited. For this natural coffee, the cherry is taken to Balcanes Mill, where it is patio dried for 18 days. Finca Hungria is a member of the Cuzcachapa Cooperative. The co-op is responsible for export and handles the dry mill process.
About Our Coffee
Certified organic coffee is produced according to sustainable practices, without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or other harmful agrochemicals. In order for a coffee to be certified organic, the farm must undergo evaluation from an independent certifying agency. The U.S. has its own organic standards, requiring a roasting facility to be annually inspected and certified in order to be labeled ’organic.’
Fair Trade USA enables sustainable development and community empowerment by cultivating a more equitable global trade model that benefits farmers, workers, consumers, industry and the earth. We achieve our mission by certifying and promoting Fair Trade products.
A traditional farming method in which coffee trees are grown alongside other crops under a canopy of taller trees. The mixture of vegetation prevents erosion and protects the coffee from harsh weather. Shade grown farms also provide vital wildlife habitat.
