El Salvador Santa Leticia Pacamara is sourced from Finca Santa Leticia, located near the town of Apaneca within the department of Ahuachapan, El Salvador. Finca Santa Letcia is owned and operated by Ricardo Valdivieso, a third generation coffee farmer, and his family. Ricardo's grandfather purchased the land in 1870 and named the finca after his wife, Leticia. Finca Santa Leticia was passed down to Ricardo during a time of great turmoil in El Salvador's history. At the peak of conflict in the 1980s, Ricardo came face to face with a firing squad in defense of his family's land. He was not shot but spent many years in exile before he was able to return to Finca Santa Leticia.
