Illustrated with Nick Mabey

Oscar Murgas’ farm is one of three that we visit directly in the mountain ranges that are home to the famous Santa Ana Volcano. Oscar actually works full time at a large commercial coffee mill but chooses to process the cherries from his own farm separately rather than sell to the mill. In this way he’s able to keep micro-lots separated and use his own raised-bed drying facilities to experiment with various combinations of process and varietal. The net result is that he is able to attain a level of quality that would otherwise be impossible with large scale coffee production.

Oscar is known for choosing to pick super late when processing. This means leaving the coffee cherries on the bush until they're a deep purple and hyper sweet. This is then amplified somewhat by the ‘honey’ processing method which leaves coffees to dry with the fruity mucilage attached to the outside of the bean. This combination definitely has a positive effect on the final cup where notes of plum, ripe stone fruits and almond/ marzipan can be clearly distinguished.

This particular coffee the Pacamara, is internationally renowned but native to El Salvador. Pacamara is a hybrid of Pacas an Maragogype and is renowned for its bigger bodied sweetness, sometimes with notes of tropical fruit.
