Reina Pacamara

Kiwi, Honeydew, Brown Sugar, Banana

$180.00

Pacamara is one of the most difficult coffees to produce and roast, but when it all comes together it rivals most exotic varieties in complexity and sweetness. This coffee is named Reina (Spanish for queen) because this area of the farm produced Agricola’s first award-winning Pacamara. While all of their farms produce exceptional coffee this lot is where it all began so she is the queen!

BREW THIS

Enjoy this with any and every brew method! Some of our favorites are through paper filters on a V60 or Fellow Stagg [XF] as well as a blooming espresso on the decent espresso machine. Tighten the ratio close to 16:1 for deeper, jammy fruit notes. Loosen it up around 17:1 to get more floral and interesting fruited notes.

ABOUT THE FARM

Agricola Geisha began as a retirement project for Gonzalo and Yrma Palenzuela. The specific Reina Pacamara lot was planted just for fun, because that's what everyone in Boquete did, plant a little crop of coffee for themselves for fun! Once the first crop was harvested they sent some to the BoP (Best of Panama) and stunned everyone when they won an award for their Pacamara. With that award came the realization that their farm and coffee growing was special, and so the broader journey began.

The Reina lot comes from their Jaramillo Centro farm, and even though it is the lowest elevation of their farms this lot is special year after year. The lot is located in a little elbow of a valley with its own microclimate which most think magically makes this coffee better.
