In 1936, Don Rafael Meza-Ayau Sr., the great grandfather, acquired properties in the Los Naranjos Valley located in Sonsonate, El Salvador, where moderate weather and an ideal altitude combine to provide some of the most fertile land in the country for cultivating coffee.

Finca Majahual was one of those properties. For several decades, the coffee from Majahual was exported mainly to Europe under the brand name Los Naranjos, renowned for its excellent cupping quality, body, intense flavor, and good acidity as well as attributes maintained to this day.

Eventually, Finca Majahual was handed down to Don Rafael's grandson, Roberto H. Murray Meza, who has since maintained a strong commitment to improve the workers’ quality of life by providing medical assistance through on-site Clinic in San Rafael, education at Centro Escolar La Cumbre, and leisure spaces for them and their families, as well as for neighboring community members.
