Hidden in Salado Blanco in Huila, Colombia are 36 smallholder farmers dedicating their pursuits to Pacamara Colombian coffee. This varietal is unique not only due to its outstanding flavour but also due to its grand size.
Pacamara coffee cherries are a hybrid of Pacas and Maragogipe varietals. Whilst the Pacas are a natural mutation from the Bourbon varietal, the Maragogipe derives from Typica. Although vastly different coffee cherries, together they have produced an exceptional hybrid. The result is Pacamara. Large in size and in flavour, this is a sweet and chocolatey must try.
The Pacamara varietal holds an important place in the coffee world. As the Daily Grind reports,
Pacamara is a highly celebrated varietal around the world due to its decisively distinctive cup characteristics, which are uncommon and sometimes unexpectedly captivating. It’s definitely a coffee you shouldn’t miss out on.
Pacamara varietals are renowned for producing a medium body, creamy finish and offering bursts of berry and cocoa. These beans in particular deliver tasty notes reminiscent of the Aussie chocolate Cherry Ripe. And who doesn’t love Cherry Ripes?!
This Colombian coffee is bursting with flavour. We recommend enjoying these beans through your espresso machine, poured as a long black.
