From aromas of molasses and peanut brittle to flavor notes of butterscotch with an aftertaste of pecan caramels and milk chocolate sweetness with just a hint of sage, this coffee has got it going on! Red apple acidity. Balanced. Beautiful.

Meet Holiday Bean - Lagunita

The Holiday Bean is back! PT’s Coffee Roasting Co. is featuring this special coffee for their 2018 pick. Grown by Sergio and Isabel Ticas, La Lagunita is situated near a beautiful mountain lagoon on their Los Planes estate. Plentiful irrigation and cool, humid temperatures are perfect for the Bourbon variety that grows there.

This lot’s exceptional sweetness is enhanced by the honey process in which the coffee dries with the mucilage still on the bean. PT’s brings it to a light-medium roast to bring this sweetness forward, creating a crowd-pleasing, perfect accompaniment to any holiday festivity.

Chalatenango, El Salvador

The Chalatenango sub-region lies within the Alotepec-Metapán coffee-growing region in northeast and north-central El Salvador, a series of often hard-to-access volcanic mountain ranges. One of the highest growing regions in the country, most coffees are SHB--Strictly Hard Bean, a designation given to beans grown above 1400 MASL.

This hilly country contains few large estates, so it lies with smallholder farmers to coax the best from the volcanic soil, and coffee trees do love this mineral-rich medium. One variety that is growing in popularity in this region is the large-beaned Pacamara, a crossing of the Pacas and the Maragogipe varietals resulting in a hybrid that is better than both parents. Intense in flavors and aromas with elegant acidity, it is hardy, disease resistant, and productive.
