The origins of Pachuj begin in the second half of the 19th Century. Its name “Pa” > place and “Chej” > of mist, translates to “place where the mist joins the highlands”, because it is located between the border of the highlands and the piedmont, where the forest type changes. The reserve is home to hundreds of species of animals, old growth forest, and shade grown coffee. Santo Tomás Pachuj has been in Andres Fahsen’s family for five generations. Since 2000, they have been certified under the Rainforest Alliance® seal, with which the farm has been given a number of awards for producing high-quality coffee in harmony with the environment and for respecting its employees, the wildlife and the surrounding communities.
