Jorge Alberto Recinos owns a 3-manzana farm called Buena Fe, where he grows Pacas and Pacamara varietals. This particular lot is made up of 100% Pacamara and is picked ripe, and depulped the same day. It is then fermented dry for 24 hours before being dried for 15–20 days on patios and raised beds.

Pacamara is the main variety favoured in Cheletenango, and is a hybrid of the Pacas and Maragogype varietals. It is commonly associated with floral, juicy, rich, and complex flavours.

The Pacas variety was discovered in El Salvador in 1949 by the Pacas family. Naturally mutated from Bourbon, it was found among their trees on Finca San Rafael in the region of Ilamatepec, Santa Ana. The Maragogype is a mutation of the Typica variety, recognised by its large cherries and excellent cup quality. 

It took years of careful scientific research by the El Salvadorian Institute for Coffee Research (ISIC) to cultivate the Pacamara varietal. As such, it has hybrid vigour due to gene diversity through its Typica (Maragogype) and Bourbon (Pacas) lineage. This provides resistance to the harsh environmental conditions, diseases, and pests prevalent throughout coffee in El Salvador.
