Honduras Las Peceras Natural
Our latest Direct Trade project features a COFFEE QUEST (US) x XELA collaboration from Honduras. This is our first single-origin coffee from Honduras, and our first step in our relationship with the Alvarado family. We have the same lot, processed 2 different ways, to display the difference between farm-level processing.
Finca Las Peceras is a single farm micro-lot from the Gualcinse region of Lempira in Honduras, and it is produced by Eva Alvarado.
The farm sits at an elevation of approximately 1,450-1500 m.a.s.l. and produces mainly the red-fruit Catuai Varietal. Las Peceras is organically fertilized and managed without the use of herbicides!
Eva takes extra care by planting mostly Pine and Guamo trees to shade & protect the coffees. In addition to coffee, Eva grows bananas, lemons and peaches, which greatly influence the taste profile of Las Peceras. The natural lot is slow dried for approximately 22 days, after processing.
The care and thought put into this natural coffee imparts a strawberry-like tone, red wine mouthfeel with a pleasant acidity and a dynamic, balanced finish.
