The famous “ Finca El Puente “ as this was my first Honduras sourcing trip I was still overwhelmed of the quality of the hundreds of coffees we cupped but these particular coffees both Gesha Honey and Natural where an absolute highlight of the trip, I still remember taking a deep breath and inhaling a rage of tropical fruits, herbs and flowers moving towards the cup was an intense range of flavors dragon fruit papaya mango sticky sorbet and bright sparkling acidity that was vibrant for hours.
The challenging thing is to work out which one you love better so we will also be presenting a honey and natural pack for you to brew and compare to these delicious coffees.
The cultivation of the coffee plant was in its infancy in the Republic of Honduras at the end of the 19th century. While there were numerous coffee plantations at the time, they were only small. The soil, climate, and conditions in Honduras are the same as those of Guatemala, Nicaragua, or Costa Rica. The downfall was the lack of transportation and no exportation of coffee from Honduras in which led to the coffee being mostly sold domestically.
Honduras in Central America which is bordered by Mexico to the north and Colombia to the southeast is now currently the the third largest producer in Latin America. Honduras currently ranks sixth globally in coffee exports measured by volume. The coffee production in Honduras has played a major role in the country’s history and is a vital source for the Honduran economy and in 2011, the country became Central America‘s top producer of coffee. Honduras coffee is sitting approximately 4% in the world coffee market and amongst coffee, other major agrictultural exports is Bananas & pineapples.
Honduras typical harvest season is between November through to April and is generally available from May.
These beans are very nice.. berries, caramel and nice juicy acidity. Definitely worth getting again. Best for espresso
