In Central America, El Salvador has the nickname, ‘Pulgarcito’, which means little thumb and is a reference to the tiny size of this important coffee producing nation. Over half of the nation’s coffee is made of the Bourbon variety and there is plenty of sweet, complex, highly acidic coffee being produced. Around 90% of the country’s coffee is also shade grown, which helps to maintain therich biodiversity that thrives in rural El Salvador.El Salvador is also famous for its volcanoes and as many of these mountains of molten rock are still active the soil is extremely rich and fertile, making it perfect for coffee growth. Thesehave resulted in some strikingly, beautiful views, with Volcan Santa Ana and Izalco standing out as the largest and most well known.
