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.

Comings and goings...February update Lots of activity and new coffees despite this being a lull period; many areas of the coffee world are still picking and processing and 2020 crop juiciness is likely still several months away. That said Rwanda is showing beautifully in the Kivu Kageyo washed just in last Friday. Colombia El ...more
Papua New Guinea Par Avion Yes, planes are involved in the accessing of this delicious PNG coffee....the remote Simbai area is rather inaccessible so farmers must schlep their coffee to an airstrip. Worth every bean!

The infamous coffee-bean cleaning-machine Jacu bird from the Amazon
If your coffee tastes like s--t, don't blame the Jacu bird! This infamous Amazon bean-machine beak-selects each coffee berry at the peak of ripeness and leaves just the beans, somewhat clean and green, behind...so to speak.
"I just now finished a cup, no pot, of that wonderful coffee you sent me. First of all wanted to thank you very much for doing that. I am honored you value my opinion. But then again I have ben interested in coffee at an early age. I was a regular at McNulty's in the Village. I think the last time I can remember getting excited about a coffee bean was tasting coffee from China. But this one even more so. I wish I could tell others of my find but not many people I know are "into" coffee like I am. So I report back to you now. The first sip was so much like the tasting of a fine wine. You know that the next taste would only be better and from there you savor every swallow. So in ending this letter I did not like it. I loved it!!!"
