This coffee is produced by Heyvis Sagastume, and is a single varietal of coffee, parainema, that comes from Honduras. It's known for it's unique acidity and flavour profile, and we are excited to be able share it as a single varietal lot.
Heyvis is a leader in his local community, with his family, the Sagastumes, being long time community leaders inside the Cielito Lindo Cooperative. Heyvis uses his farm, La Aguja, as an experimental site focused on varietal specific coffees and different processing methods.
The honey process involves removing the coffee bean from the coffee cherry, and then drying the bean with some of the pulp from the fruit of the coffee cherry. This cuts out the washing stage of the washed process and greatly reduces the amount of water needed to process coffee, while also producing a coffee with more sweetness and body.
