‘El Socorro has been in the ‘de la Cerda’ family for three generations, and continues to use traditional planting and harvesting methods for the varietals grown at the farm. The high altitudes and relatively predictable climate of the Palencia region make for exceptional specialty coffee. El Socorro employs around 100 local workers during the harvest and 40 out of harvest period, who works on processing and farm maintenance. Juan and his team have installed a water recirculation system, which recycles rain water to reduce wastage and keep the farm healthy year-round.
As a filter coffee, this pacamara varietal has notes of of green apple and caramel, accompanied by a lime-like acidity.
Coffee beans are judged on a 100-point scoring system that assesses body, balance, uniformity, sweetness, clarity and acidity. Coffee scoring 80+ points is considered specialty coffee.
