From Parlor

Pulcal is the top selection from Finca Carmona, a renowned family estate overseen by Luis Pedro Zelaya Zamora, an esteemed exporter in the Antigua region. Crisp and comforting, Pulcal provides a rich coffee experience redolent of marzipan and cacao nibs in each cup. 

We’ve been buying quality lots from Finca Carmona since 2017, but this farm has been around since the 1900s. The active volcanoes nearby contribute to the complex composition of its soils, and heirloom bourbon varietal trees are propagated across the sprawling estate. The quality of cherry selection there is nothing short of extraordinary.

Coffee trees are planted in well-spaced rows on this estate: one row in three is stumped every few years to make room for more light and air to nourish the remaining trees. This proactive program is part of a dedicated three-year pruning cycle that keeps root systems intact while integrating young plants into production for a healthy balance each harvest.
