About this coffee :

Santa Barbara is the name of a region in Honduras, but it is also the name of the mountain range that stretches through this part of the country. Located in the village of Pena Blanca is coffee exporter San Vicente – the company that coordinates the coffee we buy.

Since 2005, the region, Santa Barbara, and the small producers living and working there have shared the distinction as the place and the people producing exceptional coffee within Honduras. 

Assumption number one is always that coffee from high-altitude areas naturally exhibit these characteristics. But high elevation can lead to potential problems, even in tropical climates. In the highest areas of Santa Barbara, up to and over 1800 meters, producers can experience "freezing": the combination of temperatures between 4-5C and rainfall that combine to cause cherries to not ripen and leaves to die on the bush.

These conditions create a cold and humid climate, which is hazardous for processing and requires steady and reliable drying conditions for coffee so quality will not deteriorate. These natural conditions, of course, cannot be evaded. But a clever and prescient coffee farmer can invest in drying systems that minimize the risks associated with weather.

This coffee is a fruit bomb, with lots of tropical fruitiness of starfruit & mango, cherries sweetness with pear juicy mouthfeel. We like to enjoy this coffee in the hot afternoon, right after lunch!
