    About the farm

    Our Los Tres Potros coffee (which means "The three Colts" - but more on that later) is a flavourful stunner that very much deserves the Cup of Excellence award.

    The Pacamara variety is a cross between the Pacas and Maragogype varieties. It was created in 1958 in El Salvador. Pacamara combines the best characteristics of these two varieties. It is characterised by particularly large, red cherries with a fruity, chocolaty taste. The Pacas variety is a natural mutation of the well-known Bourbon bean, while the Maragogype is a mutation of the Typica variety, which was first discovered in Brazil. It is also called "elephant bean" because its plants produce large leaves and beans.

    The Pacamara is a costly Arabica variety that requires a lot of care. But the effort is worth it: Los Tres Potros produces incredibly clear coffees, with fine, balanced aromas and a concise character. With these flavour profiles - creamy textures, tropical fruit nuances and sweet highlights - they also scored at the El Salvador Cup Of Excellence 2018.
