This is one for the fermentation lovers! Our first Honduran Coffee of the season is quite something. Creamy and fruity, this one is a delight to drink. We don't have a lot of this one overall, but there will be another, quite different lot from Honduras for you to try in a few months. We hope you enjoy!

Some words about the producer and the coffee from our importing partner:

"Alex Ponce has been learning about coffee since childhood, from working on
his father's farm. When he turned 19, he started working in a clothing factory where
he continued to work for nine years. In 2013, Alex's uncle proposed to sell
him a property in Cabañas, La Paz (where his family originates). He
purchased the property with all his factory work savings, and
the following year he quit the factory, and started planting coffee on
the property. His dad currently lives on the farm with the family and helps
Alex to manage the farm when he's not there.

Alex has expanded his drying station this year making more raised beds,
to increase drying space during cloudy days, or when there is less sun
during the harvest season. 

This is a Natural processed lot. On the same day as picking, ripe cherries are
placed on raised beds to dry until the required moisture/humidity is
achieved. Beans are raked every 30 minutes while drying and hand-sorted to
remove defective beans."
