Honestly, we’ve not been able to stop smiling since we roasted these beans just a few weeks ago.

🇸🇻 Producer Background:
The farm and producer behind this year’s batch of Christmas coffee beans goes back three generations of the Pacas family, to Jose Rosa Pacas in 1905 when he bought his first farm, Finca San Rafael.
It was here that Jose first planted Red Bourbon coffee trees, and 117 years later, coffee still runs deep in the family blood.
So deep, in fact, that the family has two varietals named after them!
In 1958, Fernando Alberto Pacas noticed a different looking shrub growing on the farm. After heavy consultation with friends, and even getting university researchers involved, it was determined that it was a natural mutation of Red Bourbon.
The researchers couldn’t remember the name of the farm, but they did remember the family name - so they called this brand new El Salvador coffee varietal ‘Pacas’ - or so legend would have you believe!
Now more commonly crossed with Maragogype, this varietal is called Pacamara.
Over the years, the Pacas family business has become renowned for producing high-quality varietals of El Salvador coffee beans - considered by many to be among the best in the world.
After acquiring many different lands since 1905, the business now includes five farms, a wet mill and a dry mill.
Completely independent, they are involved at every stage of the supply chain, from farming right through to exporting.
What better way to celebrate a family holiday, than with a Christmas coffee produced by the Pacas family in Santa Ana, and roasted by our Odd Kin fam here in Bristol.
Feliz Navidad! 🎄
