Our roaster’s choice espresso is a blend of two amazing coffees from Honduras and Guatemala. These two coffees work wonderfully together delivering a rich, sweet espresso with a big body and with tasting notes of vanilla, cherry and rum.
The Huehuetenango region of Guatemala is one that is filled with Mayan history and whose name literally translates as ‘place of the ancients’. The region holds the highest non-volcanic mountains in Central America, meaning that the conditions are ideal for growing amazing specialty coffee. This particular coffee comes from the San Antonio Huista area grown by ‘Red de Mujeres’, which is a group made up exclusively of women. Hard times have hit these communities in the past with civil war and the coffee crisis 15 years ago, but through their hard work and resilience have come some amazing results.
The region of Cabañas, La Paz in Honduras is home to another fantastic female farmer, María Regina García and her farm El Marañón. She works tirelessly to ensure her farming practices are self-sustaining, organic and increase the fertility of the surrounding lands. She grows her coffee under the canopy of a forest which provides shade to the coffee trees. The canopy regulates the environmental temperatures and results in the coffee cherries grown to have more complex sugars resulting in a wonderfully sweet coffee.
Your coffee will arrive within 3-5 days after placing the order.
