This coffee is sourced from Lindolfo Hernández Vásquez and his farm El Narajanal in Rancho Pericón, Lempira. Lindolfo started working in the cultivation of basic grains on his father's farm at the age of 9. It is only at the age of 20 that he made the switch to coffee production on his own farm with hopes of getting a better income. By moving away from basic grains, he was able to build his house and support his growing family.
The washed process gives this coffee notes of red grape, orange and peach.
