For a couple of years now, we have on our roster coffees from a renowned coffee mill (beneficio), San Vicente, in West Honduras. Whilst traditionally this mill supplies high quality coffee from smallholder farms that are too small to separate into lots, in recent years single farmer “microlots” have started to gain popularity, especially along with events such as the Cup of Excellence competition began showcasing coffees from the aldeas (villages) around Peña Blanca – such as El Cielito, El Cedral and Las Flores.
We have a honey-processed Pacas from a small producer Cristian Lizardo. This coffee is a delight and it probably resembles a natural more than that of a honey. The organic smokiness associating with it makes it even more interesting.
