Cafe TuxpalEl Salvador Group of coffee growers
Our family has been producing coffee since the 19th century, when José Rosa Pacas bought his first farm in the Apaneca-Ilamatepec mountain range in El Salvador where he planted bourbon varietal trees. Six generations later, coffee remains our true passion and inspiration, while we keep improving our methods, quality and diversity to obtain maximum excellence in coffee.
In 1958, our ancestor Fernando Alberto Pacas Figueroa noticed an unusual shrub growing among bourbon coffee trees in Finca San Rafael. After consulting with friends and a thorough investigation in the University of Florida, it was determined that this was a natural mutation from bourbon coffee trees, resulting in a new coffee varietal. Nowadays, the Pacas varietal is most known for its cross with the Maragogype varietal, called Pacamara.
