This coffee is a twist on the best of the classic Honduran coffee profile. Layers of browned sugar notes ranging from cane to light brown, balanced with apple and grape acidity. The Honey process rounds out the cup with strong undertones of berry and red fruit.

About the Producers

Regular readers of these notes released with our Honduran coffee offerings are probably well aware that the industry has suffered much over the past decade. Labor shortages, societal instability, falling coffee prices, and an outbreak of coffee leaf rust had made coffee into a nearly unviable industry there. Fortunately the efforts of Honduran farmers, non-governmental organizations, and the specialty coffee industry are really beginning to show in the market there. More and more of the coffee being produced there is being cared for, milled, and sold as high-grade specialty coffee. 

This particular lot comes from Mirna Vasquez’ two hectare farm- Finca Johelita, which has now sold premium coffee more directly to the US, Japan, and Ireland. The premiums from the coffee allow Mirina to put her daughter, the farm’s namesake, through school.
