Likewise its rich volcanic soils and mild climate of farm provide ideal conditions for growing specialty coffee. The beans that make up El Borbollon El Salvador come from two small farms - La Reforma and Santa Maria. The pickers hand-pick and collect in traditional hand-woven baskets from December to March.
