El Timbo is a particular plot grown by the Pacas family on their La Guachoca farm. This plot or ‘tablone’ is named after a particular type of snake found in this area of El Salvador the ‘El Timbo’.

Finca La Guachoca lies at between 1410 to 1600 metres in the foothills of El Salvador’s extinct Cerro Verde volcano, in the fertile Apaneca Ilamatepec mountain range. It is owned and managed by the Pacas family, who have been farming coffee in El Salvador since 1905 and own several small estates in the area. They bought La Guachoca in 2009 – at the time the farm was known as ‘San Roberto’ but the family re-named it La Guachoca after the quail-like Guachoca bird that is native to this region of El Salvador and often sighted on the farm.
