I like this coffee. It is an interesting one. I find it quite light, but smooth at the same time. Usually lighter coffees for me have more acidity. More acidity tends to come through in the espresso, but that could just be because it is a more intense brew. This is lovely as French press making it perfect for waking up with and for a later afternoon drink.
I don’t think I have has a Pacamara varietal coffee before and am intrigued by the description on the website(http://www.hasbean.co.uk/blogs/articles/9853842-pacamaras):
“It’s a varietal that’s confused and bemused me for quite a while, and one I’ve spent a bit of time researching and tasting”
“So pacamara is a hybrid of two quite different varietals”
“it was in a laboratory,Inside the Genetic Department of the Salvadoran Institute for Coffee Research (ISIC) back in 1958. There was a coffee breeding program using lots of varietals, these two of many. One of these experiments was crossing the above Pacas and maragogype varietals.”
“But in conclusion, the two of these varietals coming together create something far bigger and more interesting than the sum of its parts, that makes this one of the most interesting varietals.”
As I said I found this coffee and the description intriguing. I noticed the beans were bigger than normal, but did not really think anything of it until I started to read up about it. This was definitely a coffee I would probably not have picked up if I had had to choose myself, but that is what I love about the subscription!
No In My Mug on this one unfortunately.
