  • Nutty with great sweetness like caramel or brown sugar. Clean finish, mellow acidity, medium body.
  • Great at a medium roast if you are looking for an approachable single origin. Would also work well as a base in a blend or in an espresso machine. Darker roasts will get more cooked caramel notes and less acidity.

About the coffee:

Joel Banegas is a fourth-generation coffee farmer located near the town of Los Planes in the Comayagua Department of Honduras. Finca Mira Flores is located over 1400 meters above sea level where caturra and the IH90 varieties are grown and blended to create this washed lot with Fair Trade and Organic certifications. Joel Banegas is the operations and milling manager for the family in Honduras, and his son, Joel Banegas Jr., is continuing his father’s tradition with his own farm that he operates with his cousin Delmer at Finca el Conejo. 

Joel Banegas’ cousin, Nelson Amador, started importing his family’s coffee to the United States in 2013 to promote transparent and direct connections between coffee growers and coffee roasters. After meeting some time ago, Hacea Coffee Source is proud to have partnered with Nelson Amador to offer his Family’s coffee on the West Coast.
