Coffee Information:
 
Developed over 20 years ago, Pacamara is a wonderfully unique varietal that is a hybrid between the Paca and Maragogype beans.  Pacamara benefits from fuller foliage and produces a much larger bean than usual, that when roasted, produces a wonderful aroma with sweet acidity and a great taste.  Pacamara, unlike other varietals generates less yield which, consequently, has resulted in fewer of the trees being planted.  Only about 4,000 bags of Pacamara are produced world wide each year and Plowshares is excited to be roasting this rare coffee. 

 This Pacamara is produced by the Menedez family who have owed and run the Las Delicias and Santa Barbara estates for over 50 years.  The Santa Barbara farm is located in the Apeneca-Ilamatepec mountain range while the Las Delicias farm is situated in the Cerro las Ranas (The Mountain of Frogs) - so called as a native frog is found in one of the mountains craters.  Above the plantation between 1600-1700 feet,  untouched native rainforest can be found containing an abundance of natural wildlife and unspoiled habitat.  All coffee on the farm is grown under shade and shade provided by native trees has increased over the years due to the farms releationship with Rainforest Alliance.  The family continues to farm with respect for the land by using constant soil analysis and innovative organic treatments.
