Head Roaster Message:
"Altitude is Everything great about Pacamara and El Salvador for me. Vibrant, fruity and intense with great balance and an insatiable fruitiness. Tropical pineapple, strawberry and mango in a cup, what more can you ask for?"
Pacamara can be difficult to roast if you’re new to it, especially when processed according to the natural method. The beans need enough heat early on to ensure proper inner bean development but also require a soft touch towards the first crack so as not to run away and become unnecessarily dark and bitter. Big beans and low density can cause a perfect storm for an uncontrolled roast profile so focus is a must.
This isn't coffee. This is Altitude.
It shouldn’t surprise anyone that our coffee-growing neighbour Miguel’s last name is Angel. He continues to spoil us with his virtually celestial, cherry-dried and ginormous Pacamara coffee beans. A sip of this fruity-sweet and juicy brew sparks memories of mountain views, pink skies and our 3 years of beautiful friendship.
Chalatenango is a unique place when it comes to coffee production. The area, nestled between Honduras to the North and Guatemala to the west, expresses a taste profile quite different to its neighbours and boasts breathtaking views from its rolling hills.
The reputation for high-quality coffee has a lot to do with the Pacamara variety. Discovered locally, the coffee variety is a naturally occurring hybrid between Pacas (itself a mutation of Bourbon) and Maragogipe which showcases exceptional flavour attributes when grown at high altitudes such as opulent tropical fruit aromas and juicy texture.
Grown in harmony with people and planet - without middle persons.

Traditionally robusta has the reputation of being of inferior quality. And comparing it to the Arabica beans, it sure presents a much rougher flavour profile. With ongoing climate change, robusta will have to play a bigger role in the future, as it can withstand tougher conditions. So we simply want to see how good we can make it and at the same time cater to the espresso drinker that doesn't appreciate coffee being fruity and full of acidity.
