Maria and Alfredo take great pride in the dynasty that is the Pacas Family Estates. Maria's grandmother was a prolific coffee farmer in El Salvador, making a name for El Retiro before passing it on to her children. As their family has grown and taken deeper roots in the coffee industry, they’ve taken a personal interest in their workers, seeing the positive impact they can make in their lives; even noticing how the farm managers are confident and proud of their work

When I first stepped foot on the farm, I was impressed with their deep connection to their coffee trees, similar to one's connection with a family member. As they've adapted their traditional growing their traditional growing methods through the years, the constant is their distinct sweetness present in their coffees.

This Orange Bourbon is grown underneath native shade trees in rich volcanic soil where the rugged mountains meet the sea.
