Jose Antonio Salaverria and his sons run Finca El Martillo in El Salvador. After years of struggling with harvest - the whole country suffered greatly from leaf rust - they managed to turn their production into profit. This because they always believed in their product and because they dedicated time and space to developing their own fertilizer, full of their own coffee produce residue. It holds off leaf rust and they believe it benefits the flavour profile of their crops. The proof: this washed SL-28.
