Our Farmers - El Salvador - Divisadero Farms (Mauricio Salaverria)
“Moe” as his friends call him, has been involved in coffee all of his life, following in his parents and grandparents footsteps since the 1890’s. Moe owns and manages 5 farms including Finca Himilaya, Finca CruzGorda, and Finca Villa Galicia (where Divisadero’s mill is also located) with primarily shade grown Bourbon. All of Moe’s farms are located in the Apaneca highlands. His attention to quality all along the agronomy and processing chain are evident when you talk to him and taste his coffee. Moe prides himself on consistent high quality, proving his attention to detail by receiving 3 awards in the top 10 COE in 2015. At Divisadero’s ecological Mill at Finca Villa Galicia, Moe has Bourbon, Pacas, and Pacamara spread across 20 manzanas with flat terroir, giving him favorable conditions for maintaining quality with selective picking.
