More Info

The Bean. Pacamara descends from a beautiful lineage of two beans that compose the most culturally and genetically important groups of Arabica coffees in the world. 

The origins of this exotic bean can be traced back to 1958 to the Institute of Coffee Studies in El Salvador. As the result of experiments, Pacamara was made crossing Pacas (a bourbon mutation discovered also in El Salvador) and Maragogype. The amalgamation of both varieties resulted in a sweeter and heavier body than bourbon bean with such deep and great flavor notes that often than not dominates cupping events such as Cup Of Excellence.

Pacamara thrives best in higher altitude with cooler climate. It is resistant to wind and its tree size makes it easier to be harvested in steep terrain, making it a very suitable for the Salvadoran geography of high mountainous areas like Chalatenango, where La Roxanita is located.

The Roast. This pacamara has a clear blueberry profile layered with sweet honey and delicate aroma that resembles that of jasmine flower with great sweetness. We have preserved the juiciness of this great coffee to blend its great aromatics, honey-like sweetness and tropical fruity body.

Naturally dried coffees take time and skill, they also save important water resources by not using them. Ignacio is certainly a master of coffee drying techniques, which is why he is able to achieve such fruity layered coffees year after year.

We recommend brewing this one for aeropress or pour over methods using 16:1 water to coffee ratio. For espresso, 18.5grams for double basket to make a bright and tropical feel espresso.

    Whole Bean Grind Chart

    If you are purchasing a bag of whole bean coffee on our website, you can select your grind method of choice (at no extra charge!) from the dropdown and we will grind and ship it to you. We grind the beans freshly for you at our warehouse in ECS Coffee Burlington right before your order is shipped, and reseal the package to maintain optimal freshness in transit.

    If you are visiting us in store, you can also request for your beans to be ground in store before you take them home.

    We use a commercial BUNN Burr Grinder to grind the beans.

    Please note: Freshly ground coffee is non-refundable and not returnable. To ensure that you receive a ground coffee that is consistent with your brew method of choice, refer to our Grind Chart below! 

    FINE

    For use with espresso machines. Fine coffee grinds will have the size and feel of sand.

    MEDIUM FINE

    Choose a medium fine grind if you are brewing with a Moka Pot, stovetop espresso brewers or an Aeropress.

    MEDIUM

    Cone Filter - We use two medium settings depending on your brewer. The Cone Filter medium setting is a bit finer, and is suitable for pour-over drip brewers (cone style) such as Hario, Melitta, Clever. It is also used for cone style automatic brewers.

    Flat Bottom Filter - This setting is suitable for coffee machines with a flat bottom basket filter, such as commercial automatic drip machines. It is also an appropriate setting for if you have a refillable coffee capsule for use in Keurig® machines. Medium coffee grinds will be around the same size as sea salt.

    PERCOLATOR

    If you are brewing with a percolator, the grind setting is a bit coarser than your standard medium grind, to minimize grinds making it through the filter. We use a percolator-specific setting on our grinder.

    MEDIUM COARSE

     Vaccuum brewers, Chemex. 

    COARSE

    For french press, cold brew coffee. A coarse grind is very chunky in look, like crushed peppercorns.

    Remember that this coffee grind chart is a guideline! If you use a coffee brewing method that is not listed here, feel free to reach out and we will let you know which grind is the best for your brewer.
