El Salvador | Llano Grande (2018) | Pacamara | Natural
Peach, blackberry, cinnamon, cocoa and syrupy
A dwarf varietal known for very good cup quality and yields. It is a cross between the Pacas and Maragogype varietals.
Coffee is left to dry in its whole fruit form which creates greater sweetness and a syrupy body.
It’s the beating heart of the Si Café operation. This is hands down some of the best Pacamara you can find in El Salvador. This Pacamara is processed through the onsite mill located in Apaneca. It’s one of the purest strains you can find and it thrives in this environment. Budding flowers dominate the landscape and the upcoming harvest looks to be of epic quality. We sat at the dining table with them and discussed coffee over breakfast, where we found out that this varietal is Don Rafael Snr’s favourite. You could see the honesty and purity in Rafael’s statement. This lot is processed using the natural method that makes it sing with flavour. Keep your eyes peeled for the 2019 Cup of Excellence... you just might see this coffee blow up!
