Pacamara is a cross between the giant, low-yielding Maragogype variety and the traditional Pacas variety. El Socorro's Pacamara is grown around 1,700 meters, near the Maracaturra lot. Like all of El Socorro's coffees, the coffee is processed directly on the farm.
Finca El Socorro, owned by Juan Diego de la Cerda and his family, has proven itself to be one of the best coffee farms in Guatemala year after year.
In 2007, Juan Diego won 1st place in the Guatemala Cup of Excellence for the first time, and then took 4th place in 2008. He won in 2011 with the Maracaturra lot, and again in 2020 with his washed Gesha!
Such consistent results made us jump at the chance to become Direct Trade partners with Juan Diego, and we're proud to continue offering El Socorro's excellent coffees year after year.
