El Pacto is a family-owned and operated farm high up in La Cordillera del Balsamo, overlooking the El Salvador Pacific coastline. Compromising 80 hectares of a rugged, steep hillside, El Pacto benefits from rich volcanic soil and dense frequent mists that roll in from the ocean; both of which provide ideal conditions for growing and coffee.More info

Aldo Parducci has been managing El Pacto and its processing program for several years now, taking the farm in a new and progressive direction. Experimental techniques have been implemented as well as a wide range of varietals planted. Pacas, Gesha, Pacamara and Kenyan SL varieties have all been started over the past 2 years and are being carefully nurtured.
This Red Bourbon is a natural processed lot and is an excellent example of the quality that can be found at El Pacto. Sweet, juicy and clean this coffee makes a delicious, easy drinking and incredibly versatile brew.
We’ve profiled this coffee to be used as both filter and espresso to fully explore the range of flavours that can be found through different brew methods. Our website has full information on how to brew with a wide variety of equipment, if ever there was a coffee to have and experiment with its this one!
We’re loving shots at 18g in, 36g out with times ranging from 32-34s. In milk expect big notes of pineapple, marmalade and dark rum.
