Don Higinio and his wife Dona Aura purchased Las Moritas in 1988, their first of many farms. Don Higinio had come to this aldea deep in the Sierra de las Minas mountains outside San Antonio La Paz when he was just 4 years old, making a 40 mile trip on foot with his family. He grew up farming on this isolated mountain, and by the 1990’s he and his wife had saved enough money to begging planting bourbon coffee trees. Originally they had hope the coffee would be able to revitalize soil that was taped out from years of growing other crops, but quickly realized the unique microclimate and terrior of Las Moritas produced coffee with spectacular quality. The coffee took off, and Las Moritas would eventually grow to encompass over 70 hectares. This year we are happy to be roasting this all pacamara lot processed by our good friends LVC at their mill in Antigua. Pacamara is a unique varitel. The trees don’t yield much cherry, but the flavor they produce is super wild and fruity, very unique and hard to find in other varieties.
Process - Washed
Varietal(s) - Pacamara
Altitude - 1800 masl
Harvest - Dec 2020
Approach - With a beautiful pacamara varietal like this coffee my goal is to let the green speak for itself. So I roast is very light, minimal time in the roaster, minimal time after first crack. I want the varietal and the terroir to speak for itself, so I try to get out of the way and minimize roasting flavors. The result is great, a complex and fruity cup that is very different and yet somehow nicely reassuring.
