FARM: El Angel


Finca El Ángel, the latest addition to the Silva family's coffee operation, was acquired in December of 2022. Previously owned by the Mathies family, who established the farm in 2018, El Ángel processed its coffees at the Silva family's mill in Apeneca. Following the first harvest in late 2021, Rafael Jr. and the Mathies family reached an agreement for the sale of the farm to the Silvas. Perched high on the Santa Ana volcano, El Ángel is dedicated solely to coffee cultivation, featuring five distinct varieties: Red and Orange Bourbon, Pacamara, SL-28, and Geisha, anacafe14.

Today, the patriarch of the family, Rafael Silva oversees operations with his wife, Carmen, and eldest son, Rafael Jr – who works as the mill operations supervisor. The oldest of the Silva family's farms is Finca La Sibiria, established in 1870 by Fabio Morán and Epifanio Silva. The farm's name comes from the unpredictable weather patterns and the inaccessibility of the land. Because of the unique micro-climate at the farm, coffee cherry matures much later at Sibiria, compared to those at the family's other farms.

In the early 1990s, Rafael Silva acquired 4 small parcels of adjoining land, and established Llano Grande, planting it with 100% bourbon. In 2008, wishing to take more control over the processing of the family’s coffee, Rafael made the risky decision to remove the vast majority of the coffee trees from Llano Grande, and build a processing mill. The mill has been operational since 2011, and in addition to processing coffee from the families five farms, the Silva family also process coffees from over 20 local producers each year.

In his role as Mill Operations Supervisor, Rafael Silva Jr is ultimately responsible for the coffees we get to enjoy each year. Always inquisitive, Rafael has been trialing experimental processing at the family’s mill at Llano Grande, and in 2019 processed their first anaerobic coffee. Rafael understands that excellent coffee does not happen by accident, and is able to control each variable during processing – to ensure quality, and achieve repeatable results.


Apaneca, nestled within the coffee-rich landscapes of El Salvador, holds a significant place in the country's coffee industry. Situated in the Ahuachapán Department, Apaneca benefits from optimal altitude, soil conditions, and microclimates ideal for coffee cultivation. The region's rolling hills, volcanic soil, and moderate climate create the perfect environment for growing high-quality coffee beans.

Apaneca is renowned for its dedication to specialty coffee production, with many farms employing sustainable practices and innovative processing methods. As a hub for coffee processing and export, Apaneca plays a vital role in showcasing El Salvador's rich coffee heritage to the world.
