"El Morito"

The El Morito Farm is located in Morales Village, Mataquescuintla, Jalapa Department, about a two-hour drive east of Guatemala City, on the way to the El Salvador border. This farm is widely recognized as one of Guatemala's premier farms, having achieved 2nd place in the Guatemala COE in 2013, 3rd place in 2014, 2nd place in 2015, and 1st place in 2022.

José Roberto Monterroso purchased this land in 1994. The farm spans a vast 672 hectares across the mountains, with one-quarter dedicated to coffee production. Initially, Monterroso, along with his family, planted traditional varieties such as Bourbon, Catuai, and Pache. As they learned and continued to improve their cultivation methods, they began experimenting with various growing and processing techniques. Eventually, they started cultivating varieties like Geisha to enhance the quality of their coffee. Thanks to the farm's high elevation of 2,200 meters above sea level and careful cultivation practices, Finca El Morito has become prominent in cultivating more delicate varieties like Pacamara and Geisha.

In recent years, they have focused on producing specialty coffee and microlots that highlight the characteristics of production processes and varieties. They have set up experimental cultivation plots to identify varieties suited to the farm's climate and growing conditions, systematically cultivating them. During the harvest season, they verify and enhance quality through cupping sessions for each batch.

 

The Pacamara variety is a hybrid created from the Pacas and Maragogipe varieties, and it is characterized by its exceptionally large beans compared to other varieties. Additionally, the Yellow Pacamara is noted for its stronger sweetness and a more pronounced tropical flavor. Although the moisture content is relatively high at just under 11%, applying too much heat from the beginning would hinder the development of the center and compromise the quality of the beans. Therefore, we set a high initial temperature and gradually increased the heat, ensuring a slow and thorough roast. The result is a medium-light roast that allows you to fully appreciate the sweetness.

The flavor profile is reminiscent of dried fruits such as raisins and dried pineapple, with a tropical impression characteristic of the Pacamara variety. The moist sweetness akin to black sugar and cashew nuts, combined with a smooth texture, offers a pleasant experience. We believe that starting three weeks after the roasting date, you will be able to enjoy an even smoother mouthfeel and the distinctive tropical flavors of the Yellow Pacamara.
