Los Bellotos

Finca Los Bellotos is located in the western part of a volcano called Cerro Verde and it was bought by Cafè Pacas in 2012.

The Pacas family’s enterprise goes back five generations, spanning across 150 years. Today Café Pacas is comprised of various farms and the Pacas variety was discovered in one of these.

This farm takes its name from the famous, gorgeous, endangered Belloto trees that can be easily found around the farm and create a dense canopy of shade for the coffee.

The farm also faces the Izalco Volcano which protects coffee trees from wind.

Labors at this farm starts earlier than usual in the morning. The reason is because here, in the afternoon, fog enters through the farm and interferes with visibility.

Ruperto Bernardino Merche is the farm manager and believes in the goodness of humans. He has been able to create a team of hard working (tolerance to coffee rust is extremely low), spiritual souls that make big efforts to produce amazing coffees.

Finca Los Bellotos is one of the most beautiful and well kept farm we have ever visited and  is where the famous Bernardina varietal was discovered!



Estate coffees are our coffees coming exclusively from single estates. We roast our beans with care, in order to offer top quality coffees and to enhance the peculiarities and the uniqueness of each producing farm. We wish to namely bring you a corner of the countries of origin and make you dive into the territory where the coffee plants root. We personally travel in search of the most original, typical and appealing beans. After selecting them, we have them shipped to Italy where the fine-tuning of the roasting process starts, in order to get the best out of each coffee. The outcome is part of our own essence: unique quality coffees.

Where does this coffee come from?

Our blends and combinations are created using coffee from the same estates where we source the beans for our single-estate coffees.

This coffee comes from the following estates (click on them to find out more):
