Regional Information

El Salvador has traditionally been known for bigger estates in Santa Ana. Chalatenango wasn’t really on the map until Cup of Excellence came. The first year of CoE, Santa Ana was in the top places in the competition; the second year, Chalatenango “was discovered.” This area has had good results due to its Pacamara variety and significant climate difference from Santa Ana: It’s a much cooler climate.

Unique Salvadoran Varieties

Pacas was discovered as a natural dwarf mutation of Bourbon by Fernando Alberto Pacas Figueroa on  his Finca in the volcanic Santa Ana region of El Salvador in 1949. This happy accident produced a high-yielding variety that grows well at high altitudes. Noticing the high production rate of this new variety of plants, Fernando  began cultivating them separately, eventually leading the naming of the new variety after the Pacas family. Its high yield also led to its use as a parent in the development of the new Salvadoran variety Pacamaras in 1958.
