We have brought in lots from the Moreno family for several years now but this is our first lot from Delmys Moreno. Coming from such a talented family of coffee producers it's no surprise that she is growing excellent coffee, but this lot grown on her farm, Finca Elizabeth, is tremendous with amazing clarity and sweetness.

The villages Cielito, Cedral and Las Flores follow one after another along the mountain range in Santa Barbara. Grown on this hillside is mostly Pacas, a coffee species akin to Bourbon, as well as Yellow Catuaí and Pacamara. Pacas is a natural mutation of Bourbon, similar to Caturra in Brazil and Villa Sarchi in Costa Rica. Similar to other widely cultivated Bourbon mutants, Pacas has a single-gene mutation that causes the plant to grow smaller leading to higher potential yields and the possibility of placing plants closer together to increase total fruit production on a farm. The variety was discovered in 1949 on a farm owned by the Pacas family in the Santa Ana region of El Salvador. 

It is challenging to process coffee cherries in areas like these, which are close to the jungle and thus, to rain. The drying process, in particular, is especially demanding. But when these processes are precisely controlled, seemingly problematic factors (like drying under challenging conditions) are what make coffee from this area particularly interesting. The coffee produced here cups with flavour attributes not found anywhere else in Central America.
