3rd Generation Coffee Growers

preserving Ancestral Land

 

What does a history of coffee look like that has endured the test of time?

It looks like Café Juayua.  

Grown in the highlands of El Salvador, tucked away in small coffee farms Las LLuvias (Rain) and La Montaña (Mountain) on ancestral land that has been passed on from generation to generation

 

[WHY-u-AH]

the name comes from the precolonial

language of the native Pipil [pee-pe-ill]  or  Nahua people,

meaning "land of purple flower", for the abundance of wild orchids 

which grew in the surrounding rain forest.

Today, Juayúa is a historical coffee town

located in the Central American country of El Salvador.

Surrounded by lush volcanoes, natural springs and coffee groves,

Juayua is situated in the famous coffee growing region of

Apaneca-Ilamatepec.

Our Coffee story

Our family has lived in these picturesque

lands for hundreds of years.  We are the indigenous communities of  the past, still present. This unique aspect of family history reads against the backdrop of a country where "coffee is king."    

 

We have a special connection to the land, one that we hope to preserve.

In order to make our small coffee farms in El Salvador sustainable, Café  Juayúa was created in 2016 by the 3rd generation of coffee producers residing in Los Angeles, CA.

All season long our family works across boarders and cultures --from seed to cup, to create quality coffee that embodies all the patience and passion needed to make a delicious cup of coffee.
