Origin Story

Mapache Coffee is a fifth-generation company of coffee producers, owned and managed by Jan- Carlo and Sofia Handtke in the Apaneca Ilamatepec mountain range of El Salvador. Mapache Coffee employs over 125 locals year- round, but during harvest season, their staff swells to 600 people who work together to build coffee nurseries, replant at Mapache’s six farm properties, and process the perfectly ripe cherries that come from them.

Mapache maintains a strong commitment to the well-being of the coffee forests, ensuring that every farm has a canopy protecting the coffee plants and soil. Their modern wet mill uses limited amounts of water during the washing process, then recycles and reuses that water in the same process. All the remaining pulp from the wet milling process is incorporated back into the farms as compost, returning key nutrients to the soil.

Mapache’s Pacamara Honey comes from a special lot located in Finca El Naranjito. Lot El Batallon has been producing some of their best coffees for the past 10 years. Due to its geography, it has a micro-climate perfect for coffee. It is surrounded by untouched forest and receives more nutrients and moisture than the rest of the farm. The Pacamara is flawlessly hand-picked at the ripest point and then later processed at the mill with strong attention to detail. The coffee is dried on movable raised beds that can be moved depending on the amounts of shade. The beds are continuously monitored so the length and speed of the drying can be controlled.
