Honduras Natural is here and we can't wait for y'all to experience this truly special coffee! This coffee is from Finca La Unica, Leticia Lopez Hutchins farm, in Copan, Honduras -- the same farm that yielded the honey processed Honduras that we've been offering and the sister farm of our washed Honduras coffee. The natural process has yielded such a bright fruit-forward flavor profile in the finished product of this coffee. Upon grinding this coffee, your whole room will fill up with vibrant, red-fruit and floral aromas. In the cup, we've been tasting a good bit of watermelon and strawberry - perfect for your summer coffee!
More on the Farm:
Our newest partnership has brought to us a delightfully complex coffee from Finca La Unica in Copan, Honduras. Finca La Unica, which is owned and operated by Leticia Lopez Hutchins, is a sister farm of the Finca Terrerito group in Copan. Coffee, among many other industries, can be male dominated, so we’re truly honored to support this woman owned farm. And, as a family owned business ourselves, we truly appreciate that Finca Terrerito is a family operation, committed to “improving lives, sustainable farming, and extraordinary coffee”. Through a Direct Trade model, they’re able to increase economic stability for their community, while staying true to their values.
More on the Process:
Naturally processed coffees are often compared to red wines in that each of them are processed with the skins. Similar to red wine, coffees that go through a natural process tend to have a rich flavor profile. The natural coffee process entails the coffee cherry being picked at its ripest and dried with the fruit intact. As the sun dries the coffee cherries, a semi-fermentation takes place and enhances the coffee's sweetness and acidity, which yields a more fruit-forward flavor profile.
Please Note: All coffee bean orders are roasted fresh and may take 24-48 hours before shipping.
