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

This Pacas Anaerobic Honey is 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 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: Brilliant

Flavor notes: The most exciting and complex acidity of the 3, the anaerobic process shows in the tropical and sparkly acidity. As a honey process, body is still full and creates a great harmony with lingering cocoa.


About Anaerobic Honey Processing

After ripe coffee cherries are hand-picked, "anaerobic" processed coffees are sealed in tanks devoid of oxygen for 72 hours to undergo controlled fermentation before being depulped and dried on raised beds. The chemical reactions occurring during anaerobic fermentation add a lot of wild and unique flavors to the cup profile.


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