Finca Ayutepeque is a farm and mill located in the Apaneca-Illamatepec region in the department of Santa Ana. Producer Emilio Lopez and his family has been growing coffee for six generations in the volcanic hills of El Salvador. He is also the founder of Cuatro M - miller and exporter of 100% single origin coffee produced in the Apaneca-Illamatepec region. Their first washing station was installed at Finca Ayutepeque where each bean is traceable back to the lot it is grown in. 

Their goal is to discover and create the best coffees at the farm, in the mill and on the tasting level. They invest in working with farmers before, during and post-harvest through encouraging and supporting practices that increase both yields and cup quality. These are factors which require involvement years in advance, commitment and financing, from the planting of the best varieties, to the pruning, fertilization and harvesting methods for each and every tree, within each and every farm.

At the wet and dry mill, quality is maintained, and everything is measured from the grade of the cherries, to the production ratios from cherry to green coffee. Every step of the process is certified to make sure that each variable of production is managed by the highest standards of quality. Coffees are washed, dried, and sorted with the most advanced machinery; and maintain a high level of cleanliness and professionalism.
