ABOUT EL GUAYABO

El Guayabo is one of the most impressive farms on the mountain of Santa Bárbara. We first tasted this coffee three years ago, and immediately fell in love with it. It is one of the most dynamic, complex, and interesting coffees we've come across. This is another micro lot from the prolific producer Mario Moreno. Mario has proven himself to be a one-of-a-kind coffee producer, and we are honored to have the chance to work with this exceptional micro lot.

ABOUT PACAS 

Pacas is a natural mutation of Bourbon from the Bourbon/Typica group mainly found in El Salvador and Honduras. Similar to other Bourbon mutants, Pacas has a single-gene mutation that causes the plant to grow smaller (dwarfism). Unlike the hybrid varieties, Pacas is very susceptible to disease, making it riskier to grow.

The cost of getting a coffee from cherry to beverage varies enormously depending on its place of origin and the location of its consumption. The inclusion of price transparency is a starting point to inform broader conversation around the true costs of production and the sustainability of specialty coffee as a whole.
