Our Pacamara has blood orange, sweet meringue, and creamy caramel flavors. The Pacamara variety is a hybrid cross between the Pacas (from El Salvador and named after the Pacas Family) and the giant elephant bean varietal Maragogipe. Its larger than normal appearance is the reason farmers from Las Mercedes call it "The King Bean" of Central America.

Pacamara Wash has been awarded 2019

"Best Coffee of Origin-Tecapa Chinameca"

Fermentation for up to 36 hours in traditional tanks add a smooth body and balanced cup. While still some herbal notes expressed as coriander, this is a cleaner and sweeter Pacamara. More sweet than savory. Up front the orange acidity is balanced with chocolate and the body finishes with a smooth sweet almond flavor. A real winner from Lucia Ortiz.

What drew Klatch Coffee to Las Mercedes was great coffee, but what we fell in love with was the people, the process, and their passion to make the coffee so great.

It begins with hand picking only ripe mature cherries, and then subjecting them to intense screening before depulping to eliminate twigs, leaves, and other foreign material. At the wet mill, the cherries are received into ceramic tiled ditches, washed with fresh collected rainwater from their own tanks, and immediately fed into a pulper, which consists of rotating disks or cylinders, each one fitted with adjustable knives.

These are designed to separate the bean from the flesh of the fruit while leaving each bean intact in its parchment envelope. They then dry the coffee on clay patios to ensure even drying.

The same care and consideration invested in the coffee are invested in the Las Mercedes community. The Ortiz Family has always been devoted to taking care of those who have helped in their success by providing clothing, food, and healthcare.

In addition, Las Mercedes is constantly making efforts to preserve natural wild life by taking special care of the disposal of by-products from the mill in order to avoid contamination.

In compliance with our certifications, chemical and pesticides are carefully stored and managed by trained personnel, avoiding intoxication and contamination. In the last years, a great effort has been made in planting native trees to preserve these species.

Finca Las Mercedes is a beautiful coffee farm with dedicated owners who care about their community, their workers, the environment and seek to provide specialty coffee.

We are proud to offer this limited Direct Trade coffee. As part of our Direct Trade contract, 25 cents of every pound is given back to fund community sports programs and Los Ortiz medical clinic. To read more about Los Ortiz Medical Clinic, please visit cafelasmercedes.com


Because Pacamara supplies are truly limited, we urge you to order right away to guarantee your share of the rarest and delicious coffee.

Nice going

I wish I could join in on a cupping at Klatch when its time to make selections on upcoming arrivals. This one must have jumped right off the table and said "Pick me!" So clean, sweet and tangy, distinctive but in no way challenging, everyone is sure to like this Sal.
