Pacamara, El Salvador
Jasmine, Butterscotch, Red Fruit
Pacamara is not a place, but a unique and utterly captivating coffee varietal hailing from El Salvador. Pacamaras coffee is known to be intense: strong notes of jasmine rise up from the cup, combining with a creamy, butterscotch body and vibrant undertones of red fruit in the aftertaste. Now grown across Central America these uniquely oval beans are unexpectedly captivating. Not a subtle or bashful coffee, Pacamaras from El Salvador are vibrant, full of life and full-on. Be prepared.
At this roast level you’ll get the full Pacamara experience head-on, the Jasmine tea and punchy red fruit really come out.
We roast our Pacamara a tad lighter to get a really good mix of jasmine and butterscotch while preserving the vibrant red fruit acidity.
The red fruit will fade out a bit but the jasmine notes and creamy caramel are still well preserved making for an excellent espresso.
Resting Your Coffee
Right after roasting, coffee needs some time to chill for a minimum of three days. Our roasting cycle ensures that when you receive the beans, it’ll already have rested the minimum needed. However, the flavours will continue to improve over a time. How long? Well that depends on the roasting level you ordered.
Generally your coffee will be at it’s peak after:
Light: 7-9 days after roast date
Roaster’s Choice: 5-7 days after roast date
Dark: 3-5 days after roast date
But every bean and person is different so please experiment and find what works for you!
No Pre-Ground Beans?
Unfortunately no. We would love to make your experience as convenient as possible, and while grinding your own beans is firmly in the mildly to very annoying category, we simply can’t do this for you.
The reason being, the second you grind your beans, you expose every nook and cranny to delicious coffee’s nemesis: oxygen. Too much oxygen and your coffee can go stale before you receive it in the post.
As delicious tasting coffee is our most important product we can’t take the risk of sending you a convenient but bland ground beans. Our best advice would be for you to buy a grinder.
