Our first offering from Honduras is a sweet, and very drinkable showing of how lovely coffees from the La Paz region can be. An area famous for coffee production in Honduras, is high in elevation with cool temperatures. These factors cause coffees to ripen slowly, developing sugars that are then processed in these comfortable climates. These coffees have high fruity sweetness with flavors of berries or peach.
Finca Rancho Escondido is owned and managed by Elvin Suazo. His 25 hectare farm holds an impressive 90,000 coffee trees. Just as impressive is his processing infrastructure. After harvesting, his coffee is mechanically depulped, fermented for 30 hours, and dried for two weeks on nylon mesh raised beds.
