Our Name

Our name “Cafe Pacay”

Our coffee owes its name to the Pacay tree, which is native to Bolivia. This tree is our coffee’s best fellow. The Pacay is a legume, which not only provides shade, helping to reduce temperature and to retain moisture in the ground. It also releases nitrogen into the soil, feeding the coffee plants with this important nutrient. In particular we honor the Pacay tree because we support local reforestation, where the Pacay also plays an important role with its nourishing properties.
