COFFEE CLOSE TO YOU
El Salvador, a blessed land for the germination and development of coffee, is facing new tourist demand that is rising to the expectations of visitors that want to know about our culture through the coffee industry.
After a good planting, there is a blessed legacy of a bountiful harvest, and in El Salvador, coffee is no exception. Introduced in the country by former president Captain General Gerardo Barrios, the development and marketing of the “Golden Grain” (as it was known back then) received a great boost during his tenure.
Farms and estates have the potential of developing as tourist attractions with their beautiful scenery, capacity for the practice of extreme sports, biological diversity, and the cultural events and traditions that each particular place has to offer, giving visitors the chance to enjoy either a combined or individual experience, according to their preference.
From there, the benefits of coffee open their doors for the drying and grinding of the coffee beans, where visitors can learn and have a say in the process this particular crop takes.
All of the steps in the coffee bean cultivation and management are executed in farm areas, which can also be combined with a number of leisure activities and extreme sports, such as hiking, wildlife observation, horseback riding, and other outdoor sports.
