Finca Los Angeles, home of Tecapa Blue coffee, is a 175 acre plantation in the Tecapa-Chinameca region of eastern El Salvador. Perched high on the side of a volcano, the plantation has been owned and operated by the Samayoa family since 1890.
At Finca Los Angeles, we implement many sustainable methods such as organic farming, protection of wildlife, careful shade management of trees, recycling, composting, and the education of a healthier lifestyle for our employees.
We are very proud to announce our new relationship with Porto Rico Importing Co. in New York. They will be carrying our cofee at their establishments in New York. Look for it this Spring!

Evers passes his driver's test after months of studying. We are all very proud of him and now I have someone to help with driving the coffee at harvest time! Not a moment too soon...
We are in the midst of harvest and no sign of the dreaded Broca this year. The beans are beautiful!
We have begun pruning the coffee trees. Two weeks down, and four to go.
With gratitude: Stephanie Andersen-Samayoa
