Roaster's Select | El Salvador Pacas Dehydrated Honey Whole Bean 4 oz

This Pacas Dehydrated Honey produced by Carlos Pola is 1 of 3 parts of a complete tasting box we've released just in time for the holidays. Pacas is a natural mutation of Bourbon discovered on the Pacas family farm and is known as a classic El Salvadoran variety.

We went a step further to showcase these lots by collaborating with Denver-based Tekwani Design Co. and Genghis Kern to create one-of-a-kind letterpress packaging made from Gmund Bio Cycle paper.



Flavor Category: Balanced

Flavor notes: The most balanced of the 3 offerings. Notes of cocoa and almond, very light apple, baking spices and a long coating aftertaste.


About Dehydrated Honey Processing

After ripe coffee cherries are hand-picked, "honey" processed coffees go through a depulper, removing the cherry skins and leaving a sticky mix of sugars and mucilage on the seeds which are then dried on raised beds for 2-3 weeks. Carlos Pola's "dehydrated" designation involves an extra period of aerobic fermentation before the cherries are depulped adding complexity to the flavor profile.

To ensure these special coffees can be shared by all we're offering them in singles or sets!
