This coffee won us over at the cupping table; it’s bright, rich, playfully sweet, and dynamic. Brought to the states by our friends at De La Finca Coffee Importers, this lot comes from La Esmeralda - their experimental farm project in La Sampedrama, Comayagua.
“..La Sampedrama is an under-promoted area in the Comayagua region with high altitude, volcanic soil, and is rich in culture. We wanted a farm in the area where we could have more control over the quality and consistency of larger experimental specialty lots including varietals like geisha, pink bourbon, parainema which we've planted and will be coming in the next few years.”
-De La Finca
This offering is available in limited supply, so it’s a real treat for us to bring it to our menu. We’re sure you’ll appreciate this special lot as much as we do - a great example of the spirit of innovation that the De La Finca team brings to the Honduran coffee scene.
