The incredible Boza Sisters of Finca San Antonio Amatepec are ambitious change-makers carving a path for themselves and the next generation of coffee producers. At their farm just outside of San Salvador, they focus on shade-grown specialty coffee through sustainable methods.

Believing their coffee was of poor quality, they sold it for a low price locally. Incredibly, after sending a sample of their coffee off to be tasted, they discovered not only was it specialty-grade coffee but that their local buyer was actually selling it as a single-origin specialty, using their name and photographs. Unfreakinbelievable!
The Boza women took it upon themselves to reach out directly to roasters to sell their coffee and lucky for us, we were one of the first they contacted! This is our 6th year buying from the Boza family.
In February 2023 we were lucky enough to spend time with the Boza family, on their awe-inspiring farm. The love, passion and respect they show for their land, the people they work with, the coffee plants, and the many animals that grace their farm (including a very lovable, crazy-eyed dog called Diana) was just incredible.

Cheek to Cheek
To give back to the producers in exchange for everything they give, above and beyond the beans themselves, we run the Cheek to Cheek initiative, putting 10% of the sale price of all our retail coffees back into their pockets. They are part of our team, part of the rebellion.
