Did you know there are just over 100 species of Arabica Coffee? You may even have heard of some of the most popular ones like Bourbon, Typica, Gesha, Catura or Catuai.
Think about it in wine terms - some common red wine varietals are cabernet sauvignon, merlot, shiraz etc and coffee is no different. They have a distinct and unique flavour!
We have a very special varietal in this edition of our Discover Great Coffee Club box…drum roll please! Have you ever tasted the Pacmara varietal? According to World Coffee Research (WCR) “Pacamara is capable of producing exceptional cup quality.”
Our friends at Faber Coffee in Durbanville were gracious enough to roast this special coffee for us for this edition of the coffee club and it has been a big hit!
“Maximus” is the Latin term for the "greatest" or "largest" says Jarrod at Faber Coffee. “The farmer is Max Perez of Finca La Hermosa Farm in Guatemala. This coffee truly lives up to its name as the Pacamara varietal is one of the largest coffee bean varieties cultivated and with a SCA score of 88 it is not only large but exceptionally great”
We tasted it, and it is exceptional!
Grown at an altitude of 2000M ASL coupled with its Natural process is what attributes to this phenomenal flavour profile of creme caramel and whiskey.
