  • Caramel, nutty, honied sweetness, mild citrus acidity, medium/heavy body.
  • Most of the best attributes of this coffee come through strongest in the medium to dark roast range. Many of the notes may seem similar to our Brazilian coffee offerings which makes this a great option for replacing a Brazilian coffee or pairing in a blend.

The majority of the farms themselves are relatively young, with an average age of 5 to 10 years. This youth is due to the fact that enormous plant renovation had to occur in the wake of an intense attack of coffee leaf rust (CLR) in 2011 that killed most coffee trees in the region and in much of the rest of the country. The subsequent renovations were carried out with a focus on coffee varieties resistant to rust. Now the predominant varieties on producing farms are: Ihcafe 90, Lempira, Pacas and Catuai, and in a lower percentage, varieties such as Parainema, San Ramon and Bourbon.
