'El Topacio' is named after the gemstone topaz. This is to stay in line with the name of its sister farm 'El Diamante'.
More than a century ago, two coffee-producer families were united by their offspring´s marriage: Apolinario and Adelaida de Magaña’s son, Francisco Magaña Herrera; and José Antonio and Gordiana de Cáceres’s daughter, Evangelina Cáceres Magaña. Both family heads were very active in the production, processing and trading off coffee, and both had their lands in the beautiful mountains of Juayúa, Sonsonate in the Ilamatepec Mountain range. The family has a long history in the town, constructing the towns church.
El Topacio is located near Juayua, a traditional coffee growing town, in El Salvador. Because of its famous gastronomic festival held each weekend the town attracts many tourists. Juayua or comes from Xuayuat, a indigenous term for the orchids also known as San Sebastian, Juayua (Xuayuat) means place of orchids or purple flowers. In 1940, professor Larde and Larin made the observation that the coffee shade trees were dressed and armed with these beautiful flowers.
Today the farm belongs to the fourth generation Maria Elena, but is run by Leopoldo Muyshondt (5th generation).
