Jorge Raul Rivera Jr. is perhaps the most successful and prestigious producer in El Salvador. He has placed first in the country’s Cup of Excellence multiple times. The Rivera legacy dates to 1979, when Jorge Raul Rivera Sr. began growing coffee in the La Palma region at the beginning of the Salvadoran civil war. With so many farmers fleeing to Honduras and selling their properties at a low price, Raul Sr. was able to buy the land that would become Finca Santa Rosa. The farm was originally planted with pine trees which serve as shade for the Pacamara coffee that grows there now. When the country’s Cup of Excellence launched in 2003, the Riveras realized Santa Rosa offered the ideal conditions for producing high-quality microlots and planted Pacamara in the pursuit of their own Cup of Excellence journey. In the years since, Jorge Jr. has been integral to helping producers in the area connect to international buyers and for establishing a certificate of origin for the Alotepec region of Chalatenango.
