Founded in 2014 by Edgar and Karen Carrillo, Finca Pacayal was formed in response to an unemployment situation in Marcala which was exacerbated by a leaf rust disease outbreak. Working under the mantra of “quality does not suffer crisis,” the farm began with washed coffees, and has grown to offer much more, and the farm became organic and fair trade certified just a year after its founding. Coffee from Pacayal has placed in the Honduras Cup of Excellence and has been sold at high prices at auctions. Edgar and Karen continue to push for better processing of their coffees and growth of their farm to ultimately bring high quality coffee to the market.
