From El Salvador
Chantuc Sustainable Producers
Chantuc was established on February 26th, 1979 by Emma Alvarez when she inherited Malacara and Piedra Pacha farms from her father, Samuel Alvarez Angel. Roberto Dumont and Claude Dumont de Hawk, Emma’s children, currently own and manage Chantuc. Dumont Family owns three incredible coffee estates — Malacara B, Piedra Pacha, Las Mercedes on the outskirts of Santa Ana city in El Salvador. The family is extremely passionate about producing impeccable coffee of four different varietals — Red Bourbon, Yellow&Orange Bourbon, Pacas, and Pacamara, and continue to innovate for new varietals. Each Dumont-owned farm hosts a school, clinic, and sports facility that serve the farm workers and their children. We’re honored to be able to support this farm and their programs that provide meaningful quality of life improvements for the local communities.
This year we are bringing you coffees from their multiple time award winning estate – Finca Malacara B. This estate sits on the slopes of the Santa Ana volcano, since coffee was first planted there in 1925. Thanks to the Dumont family’s commitment to quality for nearly a century, this farm has ranked in the top twenty coffees from El Salvador five times in recent Cup of Excellence competitions.
