The coffee is left to dry with its skin on as we wanted to achieve a greater complexity in the cup.  A fruit boom (not to acidic, with a complex mouthfeel and aftertaste which is ideal for milk based espressos. It kind of reminds me of the Shiraz - full bodied red wine but still not too heavy. 

I have known the Family Pacas since 2008, as I competed side by side with Lily Pacas at the World Barista Championship 2008. Since then, the family including Federico Bolanos been striving to produce some of the best coffee in El Salvador. 

Since 2012, I have continuously visited the farm with a close relationship with the family. 

Federico Pacas manage the farm together with his father, who is still very active when roasting their own coffee for their own cafes "Viva Espresso". If you ever visit El Salvador, you can be sure to get some good espresso and drip coffee. 

The Family has proudly passed their knowledge through 5 generations - and still to this date adapted and remaining the quality and their processing at a very high level. 

Federico Bolanos has a long record training the best Barista´s in the world. Both Alejandro Mendez from El Salvador and Joo Yeon from Korea for their winning World Championship. 

And in 2011, I roasted coffee for the Russian barista champion from their farm which was placed at a 10th placed.
