El Salvador El Aguila Pacamara

Single Origin

Te Aro

Pacamara is an artificial hybrid between Pacas (mutation of Bourbon discovered 1949 in Santa Ana Department) Maragogype (natural mutation of Typica discovered in Bahia, Brazil in 1870). It is immediately recognizable because of the enormous size of the bean. It combines positive traits of both parents (desirable cup quality and large beans of Maragogype; high yield and compact tree size of Pacas) to make a unique cup of coffee. This is our first Pacamara and we are very excited to share it with everyone.

Finca El Aguila is owned by Mauricio Ariz and his sons, 4th generation coffee growers; it is located in the Municipality of Chalchuapa in Santa Ana Department. They own 64 hectares of which 46 are for coffee and 14 are for a natural reserve. 

Altitude: range between 1500 to 1720 m

Soil type: sandy loam and sandy clay loam

Temperature range: 18 to 24 degrees C

Rainfall: 2000 to 2500mm annually

Shade: Ingas and Copalchi with 35 trees per hectare

The Ariz family also supports the Ojo de Agua community with workers and materials to maintain two roads and provides rainwater supply from their reservoirs to the community.

In terms of what's in the cup, expect a wonderfully creamy body, bright citrus flavour with some nice spice.
