Mrs Sonia Moran made a long, sensitive and demanding choice about who to sell the beautiful coffee farm she inherited from her parents, FINCA LA ESPERANZA, in the mountainous hinterland of Santa Ana. The meeting with Alfredo Pacas Diaz and his son Juan Alfredo Pacas Martinez was decisive. Since 2010, Finca La Esperanza has been owned by Cafe Pacas growers. In 2012, the farm went through an intensive replanting process following the onset of leaf rust. The Pacas farmers have turned the disaster into new opportunities and, on this occasion, Finca La Esperanza has become a garden for a wide variety of coffees. Finca La Esperanza is divided into 18 'tablones', where the varieties - Pacas, Red Bourbon, Pacamara, Orange Bourbon, Kenya, Ethiopian Heirloom, Moka, Bernardina - are each harvested and processed separately. La Esperanza Farm has 18 tablon coffee gardens. TABLON EL CASCAJAL plantation at an altitude of 1400 mvjl. It grows Pacamara arabica, a hybrid of Pacas and Maragogype varieties. A difficult variety for the roaster, a different bean, nevertheless Pacamara is our favourite because of its flavour characteristics. It is a thick, firm, juicy coffee with expressive aromas.
