El Salvador – Pacamara Santa Leticia

El Salvador – Pacamara Santa Leticia

A big hybrid bean, the Pacama coffee plant is often known to offer a rich clean cup with molasses undertones. At light roasts, you will pick up some of the earthiness that is often talked about, but we like to keep it smack dab in the middle of a Medium Roast, slight shine, nice and brown. There is also a cool acidic touch to it, not the bad acid, the good acid. Pacamara is a hybrid strain of Arabica, a bean that is really big compared to most. For you coffee geeks, this is a washed bean, meaning it was pulped by using water and softening up the outer shell, makes for a very clean raw green bean.
