Coffee Name: Reserva del Comendador - PANDORA PACAMARA

Lot #: EI09-05

Harvest date: March 17, 2019


History: This coffee region was planted aproximately 25 years ago by Arturo Aguirre Sr. He brought himself the seed from El Salvador. It is interesting that many years ago no one liked this coffee, it was very rare and buyers didn't like its exotic flavor at the time. It was difficult for Aguirre Sr. to sell it; sometimes at a discount price and other times he had to sell some bourbon in order for the buyer to accept the Pacamara. Times have changes for sure!

This is the only most awarded coffee of the COE program, winning 7 times 1st place. Also this year is in the top of the list for the first Blockchain Auction scoring #auctionlevel as always. This champion wont let you down.

Reserva de la Familia is the 2nd picking of this Region and its normally the coffee that we reserve for all the Aguirre family.

Process: Peak: Performance Process (P3). We call this to our exahustive process of hand sorting, separation and selection of the coffee beans through out the washed and dry mill. Also

Includes cold extended fermentation, soaking for 24hrs after washing ans very slow drying. This enhances the flavors and increases the life time of the coffee!
