One of Guatemala’s best coffee farms (Finca El Morito) led by Mr. Roberto Monterroso, who planted his first coffee plant in 1979. Coffee is a passion for Mr Monterroso and he constantly refines his processes and readily experiments with new processing and cultivation methods as well as new cultivars and varietals. Pache is a cultivar which is closely related to this region as it is in Mataquescuintla (aka”Colís”) where the dwarf mutation of Typica – namely “Pache” – was first identified andcatalogued.
El Morito has two of the main types of Pache cultivars:
Pache “San Ramón” (aka Pache Común) and Pache “Colís” (aka Pache Enano) with the second one being a significantly smaller plant and fruit/bean.
