Meet Sergio and Isabel Ticas

PT’s Coffee Roasting Co. met Sergio and Isabel shortly after the Ticas took 2nd place in the 2006 El Salvador Cup of Excellence contest. During their first visit to Finca Los Planes, they were impressed by how Sergio was using the money from the Cup of Excellence competition to improve the beneficio (processing mill) on his farm, a firm commitment to quality for future harvests and dedication to coffee quality.

PT’s relationship with Finca Los Planes has become the model for their Direct Trade program, in which they partner with Sergio and Isabel at Finca Los Planes on many projects to help out their community and improve the farm. Among these are medicines for the clinic and uniforms for the football team, and such involvement has created a solid foundation of trust between the farm and the community, so much so that the community has a vested interest in each year’s successful harvest.

Chalatenango, El Salvador

The Chalatenango sub-region lies within the Alotepec-Metapán coffee-growing region in northeast and north-central El Salvador, a series of often hard-to-access volcanic mountain ranges. One of the highest growing regions in the country, most coffees are SHB--Strictly Hard Bean, a designation given to beans grown above 1400 MASL.

This hilly country contains few large estates, so it lies with smallholder farmers to coax the best from the volcanic soil, and coffee trees do love this mineral-rich medium. One variety that is growing in popularity in this region is the large-beaned Pacamara, a crossing of the Pacas and the Maragogipe varietals resulting in a hybrid that is better than both parents. Intense in flavors and aromas with elegant acidity, it is hardy, disease resistant, and productive.
