We love Central America coffee for dynamic range of flavor profile. But when come to El Salvador we always trying looking for Pacamara. It is unique cross hybrid varietal between Pacas (natural mutation of Bourbon varietal) and Maraogogype (natural mutation of Bourbon varietal). It was introduced by Salvadoran Institute of Coffee Research (ISIC) to local farmers. From our experience cupping and buying Pacamara, we feel this varietal is a good varietal to represent the whole family of Arabica flavors. Inherited sweetness from Bourbon line and prominent acidity from Typica line make Pacamara has wide flavors spectrum. It up to roaster how to represent this coffee in their own way.
El Barbaro Pacamara come from family own farm (Bonkaffe). It located in El Balsamo mountain range, Jayaque, La Libertad. Around 120 workers maintain this coffee plantation during harvest, planting, fertilizing etc. The Wet mill also located inside plantation allow for faster processing and tractability of varietal. The coffee grown under the shade trees which help coffee plant from sunlight stress and act as wind breakers that can help to avoid coffee cherries easily fall from branches.
