Award-winning family farms, eco-friendly mill
Sicafe is owned by the Silva family. We grow, process, export and roast coffee in Apaneca, Ahuachapán, El Salvador. We market coffees from our 6 family farms, located around the summits of the Apaneca-Ilamatepec mountain range, and also from 30 other producers around the country. We are proud to say we have had coffees amongst the winning lots of the national Cup of Excellence 7 times! La Siberia Estate, in our family since 1870, produced a lot that was awarded 94 pts. by Coffee Review in 2008. We also received 3 awards from AVPA Paris for our roasted coffees for two consecutive years. In 2017, our mill San Pedro was named the most environmentally friendly in the country. We grow mainly 2 varieties: Bourbon and Pacamara. Our trees are covered by shade and fertilized with organic matter produced by us. We also care deeply for our staff by providing workshops, scholarships and full pensions for those that retire because of old age. Visit our website sicafesa.com.Translate

Seller (Pending)Farm: Finca Noruega Producers: Carmen Elena and Rafael Silva Farm size: 27 hectares Location: Apaneca town, Ahuachapán Department, Apaneca-Illamatepec Mountain Range Altitude: 1450 - 1720 m Soil: Clay loam Harvest season: December to February Annual production: 400 bags Average age of trees: 25 years old Average rainfall: 2200 mm Average temperatures: 18C by night to 24C by day Cultivated varieties: Bourbon and Pacamara Finca Noruega has been in Rafael and Carmen’s family for 3 generations. Its name in English is “Norway Farm” after Rafael’s Norgewian grandfather Ralph Hoff. He met Rafael’s grandmother Sara Valdivieso Borja in San Francisco, California, when they were both studying there. The two fell in love, got married and moved back to El Salvador. Their only child Thelma continued to work at the farm, now managed by Rafael and Carmen. It is said that Sara and Ralph’s love story started a tradition. For one reason or another, every couple in the family ends up in San Francisco before just before they get married. For naturals (such as in this lot) we wash the cherries with clean water and move them to the patios for at least two days to let the water drain. We do this after 6:30 pm to avoid temperature shocks. Due to our mill's elevation (1500m, we are the highest mill in El Salvador!) and mild climate, we haven't had any quality problems by doing so. We then take the cherries to raised beds, where they stay for up to 35 days being constantly moved by the staff at our mill.
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.
Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:
- Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
- EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.
Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.
When calculating price, you can select your preferred currency: USD, CHF, EUR, or GBP.
2 payment methods are accepted on Algrano:
