In the mountain Range of Apaneca-Ilamatepec we find Las Victorias farm, established in the mid 19th hundreds by the philanthropist General Francisco Menendez who later became President of El Salvador from 1885 to 1890 just like the story of winning farm El Trapiche, after his death, his daughter Juana Menendez and her husband Mister Gustavo Magana Salazar noticed the magnificent quality of coffee produced by the exceptional land, and decided to extend their cultivation area by acquiring the neighbouring farms. La Guerra I is one of them. The Maganas family developed it into what it is today which has been conveyed by its rich and supreme soil for a long time. This property has been flourishing with Bourbón coffee for more than 150 years. The coffees quality and great flavour is guaranteed by seed selection from lush trees in different areas of the property. Through five generations, the Maganas have learned experience, love and pride towards coffee growing. They have improved the quality by using the best cultural practices available to them. This has allowed the coffees recognition at national and international levels.
