Topeca Coffee

Featured in October 2012 Box

In the mid-19th century, Rafael Álverez Lalinde left Colombia, bringing only a few plants and his knowledge, and introduced coffee to El Salvador. Six generations later, his family company, Topéca Coffee, is still revolutionizing the business. Topéca is one of the few companies in the world that controls its coffee beans from the time they are planted to the time they are roasted. This “seed-to-cup” process gives Topéca the ability to ensure great quality in every cup. This luxurious coffee originates from Finca Manzano, a farm on the slopes of the Santa Ana volcano. Flavors of strawberry and balsamic are enveloped in dark chocolate, giving the cup a truffle-like quality.
