Honduras Maria Zelaya Microlot
Maria Dolorez Zealaya works with her whole family on the coffee production for more than 25 years, with an organic mode of production. Coffee producers for more than 3 generations, the Zelaya family cultivates 4 hectares of coffee bushes in Musula, in the region of Marcala (La Paz County). We have a limited supply of coffee from this unique Micro Lot which was one of our favourite coffees in 2017. The coffee has wonderful body, silky smooth, balanced, and provides lots of dark sugar and plum notes.
Guatemala La Mochilita
La Mochilita (meaning little backpack in Spanish) is a blend from three farms: El Rincon, Terrazas and La Bolsa. These farms, located on La Libertad town, has a total surface area of 133 hectares. Blend from two varieties, red bourbon and caturra, fully-washed, la Mochilita is produced on a limestone soil typical from the Huehuetenango region, which brings all the typicality of this terroir.
All the coffee is processed at Finca La Bolsa as it is the only farm having a wet mill. The wet mill is just by a water spring (50m), so the water used to wash the coffee comes directly from the soil. The water doesn’t go thought any pipes or machines. It is a pristine, pure an drinkable water.
The fermentation lasts from 16 to 30 hours depending on the weather, as temperatures can reach 33-35°C. The coffee dries on patios with a constant moving to avoid fermentation.
Over 2000 lots come out the Mill. La Mochilita is a blend of lots that scores 84+, with an acid, chocolaty and lightly spicy profile.
All the farms produce coffee under shade.
This coffee comes from the surroundings of the “Dambi Uddo” plantation (which is also the name of a huge tree in the wild forest of Shakiso, in the region of Guji). Many small producers grow coffee at an altitude slightly lower than the plantation: these producers are called “outgrowers”; they don’t process their cherries but sell them to the Dambi Uddo plantation, where they are processed before being milled in Addis. This coffee is smooth, scores 86+ with notes of lemon and peach.
