Mierisch Family: El Limoncillo 'Funky' Natural Yellow Pacamara
Has Bean Coffee works directly, year on year, to develop and deepen long-term partnerships with over 30 of the most incredible coffee producers in the world.
The length and depth of these partnerships allow us to not only source better coffee for all of our projects, but to invest in experimentation with these individuals, families, and mills to discover what can be achieved through improved science, processes, agronomy, and support.
Whilst these unique, experimental coffees are exclusive to our collaborations together, the knowledge gained through these partnerships influences how we work to assist all our producers in developing their coffee to its highest potential.
This micro-lot from El Limoncillo is an example of the team approach we’re building with our producers to create better coffee. We’ve worked with the Mieresch family directly for a number of years, developing an understanding of each other's needs and growing together. In 2007 we bought 20 bags of a CofE winning lot, these days we buy containers of a diverse range of coffees.
This yellow fruiting hybrid of the Pacamara variety was created by Erwin and his team through long-term selective breeding to deliver distinctive flavours from their terroir - A 2 bag lot of the first harvest was a highlight of the Los Favourites auction in 2014 and now with wider planting across the group’s farms it’s a signature of their offering. The ‘funky’ natural process, involving extended rest times between turns of the drying cherry, was developed by Eleana Mieresch, who manages the group's mill and QC processes, in partnership with Steve, to deliver a unique flavour and a challenging cup.
When you tie this varietal, with this process you have a one of a kind coffee.
