2 Pacas (Limited Blend)
Our annual release of 2 Pacas is upon us, a blend brimming with tributes. The first and most obvious, is with Tupac, the legendary West Coast rapper who met his end under mysterious circumstances. The second is with the intensely classic Pacas cultivar, which is a mutation of the Bourbon cultivar of coffee. (Not to be confused with the bourbon barrel aged coffees that we release, more information here.)
We work closely with the Pacas family who discovered this genetic in El Salvador. Grown from seeds sourced from some of the oldest Pacas trees in the world, we can say quite comfortably that we've been able to source this genetic at its best.Pacamara, birthed in 1958, is hybrid of Pacas and Maragogype, a Typica mutation commonly known for Meyer lemon, peppery spice, and milk chocolate. This genetic produces a large bean with the capability of producing a wild fruity character given the right conditions. Grown from a lot ranging in age, this coffee has collectively matured and beautifully transformed its wild acidity into pronounced citrus.
The current iteration of the blend is composed of two different expressions of Pacamara via different spectrums of roast. The lighter version provides melon-like acidity while the darker version contributes some roast character that translates into spice and chocolate.
