Our Direct Trade partner, Juan Diego de la Cerda, has spent the last decade diversifying Finca El Socorro, therefore providing us with a number of different coffee varieties to offer. The Pacamara from El Socorro is grown around 5500 feet near the Maracaturra lot. This varietal is a combination of the giant Maragogype variety and the more traditional Paca variety. Like all of El Socorro's coffees, this coffee is processed directly on the farm.
Diego has gone to great lengths to produce consistently high quality coffees. Located near Palencia, Guatemala, the region benefits from the rich volcanic soils and the ideal micro-climate for producing a great coffee. Quality is the highest priority at El Socorro. The farm goes to great lengths to ensure they are producing coffee in an environmentally sustainable manner.
This lightly roasted coffee features an aroma of dried fruit and cocoa nibs. When brewed it has a buttery body with notes of honeyed almonds, a prune-like sweetness, and juicy acidity. The finish is rich with notes of maple syrup, dates, and dried figs.
