  • Fragrance of chocolate and orange marmalade with an aroma of strawberry and tootsie roll. Flavors of orange, blueberry and strawberry with an aftertaste of dark chocolate and pie crust. Bright raspberry acidity with a syrupy heavy body.
  • We recommend trying this coffee at a light/medium roast to show off its berry and orange-forward character. Best as a punchy espresso or unique pour over option.

The pacamara plants at Finca La Luisa are the result of years of collaboration, failure and adaptation. Juan Pablo first received the seeds from a friend in Guatemala back in 2015. This friend was also gifted the seeds from a grower in El Salvador before that. Like most cultivars, the pacamara that was planted at Finca La Luisa took 3 years to produce the first cherries. After much anticipation, the resulting cup was a great disappointment for Juan Pablo and the team. The original planting location was at the bank of a river with cold, muddy soil and an over abundance of shade. After just 3 years there, the entire lot was lost. Don Juan saved some of the seeds from these plants and planted them in another area, higher up with more sun exposure, better soil and a different microclimate than that at the edge of the river. Again, it took 3 more years to produce enough cherries to harvest and the result was completely different! The quality is exceptional with complex flavor notes that we have come to expect from well produced pacamara coffee. After 7 years of effort, this is the first year that this coffee is being offered in the United States!

Bright and Juicy!

This bean is so bright and juicy. So good as coffee and espresso. Easy to roast as well. I would give it 6 stars if I could, although it is expensive but it is worth it!
