El Salvador Washed Pacamara SHG Special Preparation Finca Las Luces

Finca Las Luces lies on the cordillera de Apaneca-Ilamatepec, with a stunning view on the Volcán de Santa Ana, the highest volcano of El Salvador, at between 1250 to 1350 meters above sea level.
Don Alfredo Pacas, El Salvadoran coffee veteran whose name do not need any introduction, acquired Finca Las Luces in 1992. He soon replanted the original Tekisik variety, an offshoot of Bourbon, with Pacamara, more adequate to the microclimate and altitude of the area, as well as for the agobio pruning method. The Pacamara coffee variety is a cross between the Pacas, the natural mutation of the Bourbon variety discovered by don Fernando Alberto Pacas Figueroa in El Salvador in 1949, and Maragogipe, the mutation of Typica with very large cherries: as the latter one, the beans of the Pacamara variety are very big, with striking sugary sweetness and florals notes. The agobio is a pruning method where branches are bent in order to provoke new growth of productive branches, using the well-developed root system that the plant already has.
Charismatic siblings Maria and Alfredo Pacas personify the company’s values of responsibility, respect and integrity, with a healthy dose of fun thrown in.
