Guatemala El Limonar Pacamara Microlot
Roasted for filter: Best enjoyed as a pour over, without milk, to allow the subtleties of the light roast to emerge.
El Limonar farm is located in the mountains of Huehuetenango. The land was acquired by Rogelio Aguirre Gálvez in 1955 and he named the farm El Injerto. Today, El Limonar is run by the third generation of the Aguirre family.
This is a small lot of the newly planted Pacamara variety available to us at Bailies Coffee from the El Limonar farm. Having been impressed with previous varities from Rogelio's farm - with the natural processed version being one of our favourites at the Roastery - he planted this special lot. Rogelio planted Pacamara, a cross between Pacas and Maragogype, at the top of his farm. This plot of coffee is yeilding exceptional results and we are happy to bring it to you this year.
The picked cherries are brought to the wet mill at the bottom of the valley. They are spread out on a drying patio, into thin layers to remove any moisture. This process is slow and continuous taking up to three weeks before reaching the dry mill at Palin.
