Our second year working with the Honduran Coffee Alliance and our second time buying from the farm of Finca El Rayo in La Paz owned and operated by Selman Dagoberto, a third generation coffee farmer. A university graduate in agricultural engineering and a certified Q grader, Selman has become one of the local experts in coffee production. As well as owning and running his own farm he also works as a contractor for the inter-American institute for cooperation on agriculture to train producers in techniques to have more productive and disease resistant coffee.

Frequent climate challenges (Honduras suffered two category 4 and 5 hurricanes at the end of 2020), labor shortages and covid made the 2021 harvest very challenging. And this microlot, a blend of Bourbon & Catuai did not perform as well on the cupping table as last years, 85 versus the 87 of last year. But we are committed to buying from him. Selman is an obsessive devotee to the natural processing of the coffee cherry, and as a result we are keen to continue to support his dedication to the exotic and wild coffee train.

If you like funky coffees then this is gonna be your Jam. 
Not for those who like their traditional coffee flavors this is a walk on the wild side for sure.

Like Marmite. You either love it. Or you hate it.
