Pacas Coffee Variety

Pacas is a natural mutation of the Bourbon variety. It was discovered by the Pacas family, after whom it was named, in 1949 on their farm in El Salvador.

The coffee plant is quite small in size, so the cherries are easy to harvest. They also have compact foliage, which helps protect them against harsh climatic conditions such as strong winds, sun exposure and water scarcity.

The balanced tassel profile is very similar to that of the Bourbon variety: complex flavors meet intense sweetness and mild acidity.
