In 1936, Don Rafael Meza-Ayau Sr purchased land in the Los Naranjos
Valley of Sonsonate, western El Salvador. The moderate weather, high altitudes and fertile
soils provide idyllic conditions for quality coffee production, that over the decades has
garnered an impressive reputation. Most notably as finalists in the Cup Of Excellence
Originally under the export brand Los Naranjos, the current owner (Don Rafael’s grand-son)
Roberto H. Murray Meza, has changed their name to Finca Majahual. He has also bolstered
long-standing traditions to support the dedicated workforce at Majahual, providing medical
assistance with an onsite clinic, an education centre and leisure facilities – with extended use
to all family and community members neighbouring the family properties.
Majahual’s initiatives for the preservation of native wildlife and precious environmental
resources are a shining example to the industry. The principles mean that all of the coffee
plants across their 90 hectares are shade-grown amongst natural forest, ensuring the
biodiversity of the ecosystem thrives. The most recent audit from Rainforest Alliance
returned them a perfect scorecard, reflecting the socially and environmentally responsible
practices they are championing there.
