The Pacas family is known throughout the coffee industry as royalty, with genetics, processing techniques that are second to none. Federico Pacas owns Cafe Tuxpal,
this farm was bought by Marina Lopez Pacas, Federico’s mother in 2008.
This specific land was used years ago for rooster fighting and it is rumoured that
Central American Presidents came to this farm to play in the 70’s.
There is still one of it’s 5 lots named after the roosters: “La Gallera”.
When the farm was acquired, it had been abandoned for many years, so it was completely replanted with Pacas and Sampacho trees.
