    From our friends at Sey:  

    This is our third year buying from Piedras Amarillas. This is a 100% Pacas separation, and the strongest year yet from this rather interesting farm. This year the coffee is surprisingly complex. We taste lychee, blackberry, and orange blossom honey.

    ABOUT PIEDRAS AMARILLAS

    Piedras Amarillas (yellow stones) gets its name from the abundance of yellow rocks scattered throughout this small 4-hectare (9.9 acre) plot. The farm is a communal project between three of the Moreno brothers: Mario, Danny, and Mabel, and consistently produces high quality Pacas, Bourbon, and Catuai coffees. The Morenos have been a cornerstone of coffee production in Santa Bárbara, dating back to their father, Daniel Moreno, who purchased his first farm in 1963. 

     

    ABOUT PACAS

    Pacas is a natural mutation of Bourbon from the Bourbon/Typica group mainly found in El Salvador and Honduras. Similar to other Bourbon mutants, Pacas has a single-gene mutation that causes the plant to grow smaller (dwarfism). Unlike the hybrid varieties, Pacas is very susceptible to disease, making it riskier to grow.
