Honduras Finca Florencia - TYPICA Washed
Sparkling notes of red apple, meyer lemon, pear and melon, Bursts of tropical fruit and honey add a dimension of sweetness.
This single-varietal micro-lot was produced by 79 year-old Isaura Martínez Benites who was born in the village of Florida, Opatoro in 1942.
Isaura and her mother moved to Mogola, Marcala, La Paz, when she was 5 and spent a very quiet childhood breathing fresh air, playing outdoors, and going to the river to fetch water in "cantaros". Her great passion for coffee was instilled in her by her father Antonio Martínez Argueta who taught her the value of hard work and how to maintain a farm. To this day, Doña Isaura gets up at 4:00 am to plan the day and organize the workgroups. Her husband Francisco oversees coffee processing, storage, and logistics at Beneficio Opatoro and in colaboration with Pacayal.
Pacayal Coffee invests in several initiatives for producers, including best agricultural practices training to prevent roya, economic empowerment programs for women, sustainable production practices training, and quality research to develop award-winning coffees.
