NOTE: All of our premium Arabica coffees are roasted to City+ to Full City roasts, showing minimal-to-no surface oils….we want all of the flavor to stay in the beans until the coffee is ground! Despite the additional descriptors, the first flavor and aroma you'll think of is "COFFEE".

Honduras Microlot Santa Elena Catracha Ernesto Vasquez

Country of Origin: Honduras
Honduras Microlot Santa Elena Catracha Ernesto Vasquez
TIP: You can save products to your favorites list if you log in
Continuing our commitment to the Honduras Catracha Coffee Project we brought in another gem of a microlot, from producer Ernesto Vasquez Hernandez from the little but big-hearted community of Santa Elena in La Paz district. Ernesto's 4-acre plot, at about 1800 meters of elevation, is called “El Durazno Melocoton” and is planted with Bourbon and Catuai varietals.
Catracha works with a select group of farmers who participate in monthly educational seminars to imporove their coffee production. These capacity-building opportunities have helped Ernesto increase yields and overall quality dramatically. He receives all the profits associated with the sale of his exported coffee, which is the main source of income for him, wife Fidencia, and their four children. Ernesto has plans to renovate his micro-mill and purchase a solar dryer.
We are roasting Ernesto's coffee light-medium to accentuate notes of butterscotch, citrus and florals, and recommend pourover as the tastiest preparation method.
Please read more about the Catracha Coffee Project! The badblog has the link to Mayra-Orellana Powell's testimonial..it all started in her hometown of Santa Elena.

Colombia Pink Bourbon is back 1/22/18 Loved this coffee the last two years and jumped on a few bags when they arrived in Portland last week...admittedly heavy on Colombians these days but heck, they're fresh and tasty and unusual....about as far from the "Juan Valdez" coffee profile as I can imagine.

" Kiflu Hussain July 7 at 9:09am · Surprise! surprise! I have never received a personal or official letter through my employer's mail box. This morning, the mailman came as usual and left a package on the table near the entrance to my office. I assumed that it could be something to do with the Institute I work for and addressed to our boss or the Coordinator as usual. When our Coordinator arrived, she said this is for you. Suspicious, I looked up the sender's name which is totally unfamiliar to me. Also checked from where it was sent. It's from Portland, Oregon. Although, I know two persons from Oregon, one living in Salem, the other one I don't exactly know, the package was not even from these friends. Meanwhile, I was sort of hesitant to open the package from a total stranger. But my colleague encouraged me, thus I opened it. It's from a guy who listened to my interview on NPR, The Takeaway. He told me that he's touched by the passionate discussion I had with John Hockenberry. Thus he sent me Ethiopian coffee imported from my country, as he has been in the business of roasting coffee since 2000 which inspired him to know more about Ethiopia. Well, it would be an understatement for me to say that I am encouraged by this person's kind gesture. I am also touched and humbled to have one more rich connection with a fellow human being."
