This Natural Process Pacamara was produced with exceptional care. Natural coffees are typically dried right after picking and sorting. Sergio worked with us by taking the extra step of washing the cherries before being dried on raised beds. Although the cherry is removed from the coffee after drying, we wanted to ensure the drying process would be as clean as possible by removing all residue and debris from the coffee cherries.
Over the last decade, El Matazano has become one of our favorite micro-lots. It is a beautiful example of the Pacamara variety and one of the first lots we ever featured from Finca Los Planes. Husband and wife producers Sergio and Isabel Ticas grow this coffee at the highest elevation on their farm, over 5700 feet. Higher elevations tend to have cooler nights which slows coffee cherry maturation, creating a deeper sweetness in the processed bean. The Pacamara varietal is a hybrid of the traditional and flavorful Pacas variety and the giant, high production Maragogype variety and was first bred in El Salvador in 1958. It's large cherries produce a coffee that when roasted properly feature complex citrus notes and a creamy body.
