Varietal Information
The Yellow Pacamara is a natural mutation of the Red Pacamara (a cross between a Maragogype and Pacas). We first discovered this yellow maturing varietal on our farm El Limoncillo around 2004. We re-planted some seeds from these initial trees and from there have grown this varietal in our other farms as well. This varietal requires more food (fertilizer) than other varieties, about 20% more when compared to a Bourbon or Caturra, and requires soil that is rich in magnesium, zinc, and potassium (which La Huella is generously endowed with). It is also a varietal that is susceptible to diseases and does not produce a large yield. Despite these disadvantages, this varietal produces a spectacular cup profile. Fruitier and more citric than its red maturing cousin.
 
Farm Information
La Huella is a relatively new farm; it was purchased in 2014. Nonetheless, it is producing some of our best coffees. It is located inside the Arenal Nature Reserve which places restrictions on deforestation and water contamination. Something unique about the micro-climate of this farm is that it will be covered in fog for around 60% of the day. This means we do not use many shade trees on La Huella, because the farm auto-shades itself with the fog. The Yellow Pacamara variety, which requires more sunlight than other varieties like Gesha, thrives on this farm due to the limited number of shade trees. Other varieties grown on this farm are Yellow Pacas, Red Pacamara, Javanica, Orange Bourbon, Red Catuai, SL-28 (just recently) and H1 Centroamerican (just recently).
