Cuatro M is owned by Emilio Lopez, a producer passionate about his work and in permanent search of perfection, both at his farm and in the cup. He describes his way of working as non-traditional and likes to think outside the box.
Cuatro M produces, processes and exports not only its own coffees, but also coffees from neighbouring farms. Emilio has managed Cuatro M since 2001. It is a company with a long history of coffee production. Emilio belongs to a sixth generation of coffee farmers. When he took over the management of the family farms, he wanted above all to create a new company, unique in El Salvador. In 2005, Emilio and his team set up the mill (beneficio) at the El Manzano farm.
Today he owns one of the most beautiful production facilities in Central America and can process his coffees using a variety of methods, always with great precision and the same objective: to achieve perfection! He lives by three key values, which are quality, consistency and innovation – we can assure you that you will never be disappointed by the quality of an Emilio coffee!
