Finca Don Octavio

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Introducing one of our newest producers, Jose Octavio Umaña Valdivies. This past February, while travelling to El Salvador, we had the chance to visit with Don Octavio, a retired scientist from Toronto who recently started his own farm as a retirement project. We were blown away by his story, as well as his coffees.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Since returning to his native El Salvador in 2012, he began planting Pacamara exclusively, and with his first commercially available lot, he entered into the Cup Of Excellence and took #5th place.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The Umaña family have cultivated his farmland for 150 years. Originally, the property bore the fruits of basic grains, vegetables, and trees for fruit and timber, passing down from one generation to the next. For Don Octavio, the road to coffee cultivation wasn't without its challenges. Octavio's first attempt resulted in the loss of 3,000 precious coffee plants. Undeterred, he began anew, investing in improved aquifers and immersing himself in the art and science of coffee farming. With guidance from nursery experts and an unwavering determination, Don Octavio's journey as a Pacamara grower took flight. Today, seven years later, his harvest is bountiful. What was once a passion project, enjoyed by friends and family, has expanded to a broader market.

We are very happy to share this exclusive pacamara natural nanolot with you!
