2020 has been a great year for natural coffees from Central America. Alongside our releases from Nicaragua and from La Esperanza farm in El Salvador comes this very special lot from the La Cumbre farm. Founded in 1872 by Mr. Cornelio Lemus (great-grandfather of Margarita Lucia Díaz de López), the farm has remained in the family for five generations now and the care and cultivation that brings is apparent from the first sip.
This particular selection is completely made up of the Pacamara variety. The variety is a hybrid of the Pacas and Maragogipe varieties, and is known for having a very large bean size and a lovely, sweet, and complex cup profile. The natural process accentuates these characteristics here, and lends even more of the fruity, sweet pop. We only bought 5 bags of this stellar coffee, so it will be gone quick!
