Unusual profile: slightly savory, mostly sweet, original in aroma and flavor. Roasted almond, peach, kumquat, spicy flowers in aroma and cup. Gentle, rather juicy acidity; buoyant, lively mouthfeel. Roasted nut and peach in particular persist in very rich, very sweet finish.
This lot is comprised entirely of the much admired, bold-bean Pacamara variety of Arabica, a cross between the giant-beaned Maragogipe variety and Pacas, a selection of the heirloom Bourbon. Farmer Juan Diego de la Cerda’s Finca El Socorro y Annexos has consistently scored in the top five in recent Guatemala Cup of Excellence green coffee competitions. This coffee represents a direct-trade relationship between PT’s and El Socorro. Roasted at PT’s Coffee, where the motto is “without the love, it’s just coffee.” Visit www.ptscoffee.com or call 888-678-5282 for more information.
Who Should Drink It
Light roasting allows this Pacamara’s gently unusual character full expression.
