From The Crafted Coffee Company:

"Situated among the Ilamatepec Mountain Range in western El Salvador, Finca Portezuelo is an active coffee farm growing specialty coffee. The farm is also a nature reserve that offers tours, ecotourism, and breathtaking views. Rich drinkable spring water is abundant at the slopes of El Portezuelo, contributing to a clean cup in this washed coffee. Doña Elsa Luz Avila de Alfaro, youngest sister of the Avila Magaña family, proudly follows the tradition of her ancestors by practicing environmental stewardship in the growth of Bourbon coffee nurtured by the shade of "Inga" trees.

This coffee also boasts a Rainforest Alliance certification. To be RFA certified implies standards that are intended to protect the environment and the rights of workers. This certification allows the farmers to have a sustainable farm-management system, control costs, increase efficiency, improve crop quality, and maintain wildlife habitat."
