Loma La Gloria can be found in the El Boquerón crater of the San Salvador Volcano in the El Bálsamo Quetzaltepec region of El Salvador. Shade trees cover much of the farm and are home to many species of birds, including Blue Jays, Chiltotas, Torditos, Guacalchias, and Hummingbirds. The shade canopy helps control temperatures on the farm, maintaining the optimal climate to produce a desirable cup profile.
Loma La Gloria is operated today by Anny Ruth and her father Roberto Pimentel. Roberto purchased the farm in the late 1990s and named it Loma La Gloria after his grandfather’s estate where he spent his childhood summers. A civil engineer and visionary businessman by nature, Roberto completed construction of a processing mill on the farm in 2001. Unfortunately, the mill was abandoned upon completion due to an ongoing coffee crisis in El Salvador at the time, and Roberto continued selling cherries from Loma La Gloria to other mills.
Anny Ruth began working with her father in 2012 after finishing her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees and beginning a career in business. Under Anny Ruth’s leadership, Loma La Gloria has improved year after year and has earned an international reputation for quality. She continues to be dedicated to controlling the process, quality, and traceability of all the beans that pass through. Today, the mill is recognized for its carefully processed Honey and Natural coffees, which are sorted by variety.
This is a blend of white and yellow honeyed processed coffees that we have sourced from them and it creates a unique body while highlighting coffees fruitiness! Expect a sweet coffee with tropical notes and citric like qualities as well.
