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.

"The Stradivarius espresso blend roasted 1/9 was delicious. My machine loved it, made a perfect shot almost every time (not my normal!). Makes ton of crema. Thanks again! Lori"
