Coffees from El Salvador have possibly the most distinct flavor profiles of any central american country. This is due to geography, and also variety - El Salvador grows two varieties of coffee - Pacas and Pacamara - that are not found in many other countries. Finca La Bendicion grows both varieties, and each variety that comes off the farm is unique even for El Salvador. They are extremely fruity, with a bubble-gum or candy aspect to their sweetness. We’ve managed to obtain some of both varieties - this is the Pacamara variety, but check back soon for the Pacas.
