Being a young entrepreneur and something of a maverick, Pablo opted for Alta Verapaz – a region that despite its wet and cool climate, gathered together all the growing conditions he was looking for. He found medium sized plot of land for sale in the town of Tactico not at all a common place for coffee production due to its unusually cold weather. Many friends and family (not to mention other coffee farmers) were sceptical about the location and his plans, and Pablo knew that the road ahead would be di cult. Nonetheless, on October 15th 1991, he carried a bag of coffee seeds to the area in order to start his nursery and, in that moment Finca Santa Sofia was born. Sitting at 1,675 metres above sea level Pablo named the farm after his first daughter, who was born in the same year. Even today, Santa So a is the only coffee farm in the immediate micro-region and produces one of the best coffees in the region. Today the farm products Caturra, Catuai, and Typica varieties with a total annual production of some 500 bags per year, 100% of which is sold as specialty coffee.
