This very rare mutated yellow Pacamara from El Limoncillo has a beautiful spiced and citric profile. Those who enjoy herbal and complex coffees will find this limited batch delightful. 


Each coffee is roasted to order. Orders ship in 1-2 business days.



Farmlevel Story

 The Fincas Mierish group of Nicaragua has been growing coffee on El Limoncillo since the 1930s, and named the farm as a nod to its origins as a lemon orchard. In 2004, El Limoncillo discovered a mutation amongst their Pacamara – the normally red fruits were yellow, a mutation no one knew existed. The result makes for a spectacular flavor profile, a bit fruitier and more citric than the red variety.

Brewing Suggestions

My 1:15 ratio brew uses 4 pours to achieve a delicious and complex cup, with a TDS of 1.37. After dosing the dripper with 15g coffee and taring our scale, we pour in a spiral motion and bloom to 45g. At 0:30 seconds, pour to 90g. At 1 minute, pour to 157.5g. At 1:40, pour until the scale reaches 225g. We like to gently swirl the dripper after this final pour, to ensure a level coffee bed and even extraction.
