Las Flores, Santa Barbara | Parainema | 1500 masl | Washed

Along with shortbread sweetness, this delicious coffee showcases layers of fresh fruit notes such as huckleberry, raspberry, and orange zest.

This late harvest offering comes to us from the Las Flores village of Santa Barbara, where Benigno Mejía Garcia has been farming coffee since 1973. This lot is 100% Parainema, a cultivar that is a member of the Sarchimor hybrid family that is mainly found in Honduras. Benigno has garnered some accolades for his Parainema crop, winning the Best of Honduras competition in 2018. After picking, parchment is dry fermented for fifteen hours before being washed four times. The coffee is then dried using a parabolic solar dryer.
