All harvested and processed separately Processes: Washed, semi-washed, honey and natural Yearly average rainfall: 2000 mm Average age of trees: We have an extensive tree renovation program since the leaf rust outbreak in 2012. Because of that, we have trees that are 80 years old, 5 years old, 2 and even 1 year old Finca La Esperanza was bought by my family in November 2010. The original owner Sonia Moran had inherited the farm from her father but, as her children were involved in other businesses, she decided to sell. At the time there were many potential buyers and Sonia decided in favour of our family due to our shared views on coffee farming. The farm is divided into 18 tablones and was chosen to be our variety garden. Here is where we do many experiments with new varieties of coffee to find out which new ones we can best adapt to our climate. The biodiversity is not restricted to coffee plants, however. We also have a range of trees for shade, like the inga, the eucaliptus and conifers.

About the group Translate

Our family grows coffee in multiple farms in the Western part of El Salvador within the Apaneca-Ilamatepec mountain range, a region known for its fertile volcanic soil. The Pacas variety was discovered in one of our farms, as well as the Bernardina. Some of our farms have been COE winners with coffees scoring above 90! Our mantra is "To love coffee as we love family". We watch it grow from seedling, we look after it, we nourish it with everything it needs to be its best. We cultivate and treasure our coffee. We believe in it. And when it grows and it is ready, we let it free to go wherever it wants, to all corners of the planet. Doesn't matter how far it goes and where it settles, we still feel it is part of us and we are proud of it. As a company, we are committed to providing our staff with good working conditions, decent wages and training. We also have an internal competition to motivate farm managers to increase the quality of the coffees. Read more about us here: cafepacas.com.

FAQ


Shipping
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.

Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:

  • Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
  • EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.

Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.
