EL SALVADOR, Finca San Andres, Chalatenangu
This coffee is a Microlot, from the Nueva Esperanza farm. Jose Fransisco Recinos grows both Pacas and Pacamara in his 2-manzana farm. After picking the coffee, it is de-pulped. The coffee is then placed in sacks to ferment for 14-18 days before the drying process whereby it is laid out on raised beds for 15-20 days.
Known as the ‘land of volcanoes’, El Salvador is the smallest Central American country. El Salvador has been able to capitalize on its reputation for varieties of Old stock Typica & Bourbon, the local dwarf-Bourbon mutation Pacas, as well as the Salvadoran-created hybrid Pacamara (a mix of Pacas and Maragogype, a large-bean-size coffee plant) allowing growers to differentiate by marketing individual varieties of coffee.
