About the coffee farmer

Rodolfo Ruffatti Batlle

Finca El Salvador

Four generations of the Ruffatti family have operated this farm in western El Salvador since the early 1930s. Today it is managed by Rodolfo Ruffatti Batlle. His great-grandfather Rodolfo Ruffatti, after whose name Rodolfo is also named, came from Turin to El Salvador at that time & founded the coffee farm. The Finca El Salvador is currently being restructured by Rodolfo & planted with new varieties. The lower part of Finca El Salvador focuses on rust-resistant, high-yielding and high-quality varieties such as Tabi and Portillo, while the upper part of the farm is planted with exotic varieties, mainly from Colombia, Kenya and Ethiopia.

Rosangel Sandoval Barrientos – runs a small coffee farm in the Buenos Aires region & supplied coffee to the 2022 Brewers Cup Champion in Austria, Martin Wölfl.
