This Single Origin coffee from El Salvador is named after the national Maquilishuat tree, which is identifiable by its clusters of bright pink blossoms. Maquilishuat is produced on Finca San Pedro, a farm run by a group of producing families called Coop Altos del Volcan. San Pedro is near the Volcan de San Salvador, in the Cordillera El Balsamo Quetzaltepec coffee region of the country.

This coffee is a blend of the Bourbon and Pacas varieties and as such calls to mind the history of the two Arabica varieties’ cultivation in El Salvador. Pacas is a naturally occurring Bourbon mutation discovered in 1949 near the Volcan de Santa Ana on the Pacas family farm in the Northwest of El Salvador. After studying its performance in the field, Pacas was distributed nationally as an ideal variety for both its cup profile and small, manageable tree size.
