Honduras La Sierra
To say that last year was hard for the community of Santa Barbara, Honduras would be an understatement. Atypical weather resulted in an incredibly small harvest. We were lucky enough to still source small lots from our longtime partners in Santa Barbara. This lot, from Danny Moreno, is one of our favorites, with notes of bing cherry, cocoa nib, prune, and persimmon. Danny is a third generation coffee grower, son of Daniel Moreno, and a member of the large Moreno family of producers. He purchased the plot that makes up La Sierra in 2009. Danny’s father, Daniel Moreno, started coffee farming in 1963 with the original purchase of La Sierra. The plot sits at 1400 meters in the town of El Cedral in the famed growing region of Santa Barbara.
