    Roaster’s Notes
    Carlos Batres inherited Montecarlos in the mid 1980’s. The fifth generation of his family to steward this land, Batres has made Montecarlos his life’s work. Along with his wife, Julie, Carlos is running a farm focused on producing coffee that legitimately deserves the "specialty" moniker. The Pacamara variety has a unique flavor profile that is often defined by an umami characteristic. At worst this can be experienced as onion-like, at best it produces the effect of an expansive mouthfeel and a completeness of flavor profile rarely found in other varieties. This meticulously crafted lot is incredibly clean with an exceptional sweetness and is replete with flavors of cocoa, raspberry and marzipan. Montecarlos Estate is the first coffee farm in the world to cultivate this unique variety. We feel honored to purchase this coffee, which represents such an important piece of specialty coffee history.
