Lucila Del Carmen Colindres

El Paraíso is a southern department of Honduras. Most of it sits on the border with Nicaragua. It is home to the Montserrat mountain, which towers over the capital city of Yuscarán.

This coffee is sourced from Lucila Del Carmen Colindres and her farm, Finca El Bosque, in El Paraíso. She and her husband decided to return to the family farm after finishing their university degrees in law and medicine. The city life just did not support the environment they wanted to raise a family in. As second generation coffee producers who own and manage Finca El Bosque, a 75-acre estate, the couple is always looking for ways to innovate.

This specific lot was tended by Lucila herself, and was grown at the highest altitudes of the farm. She only picked Parainema cherries, a varietal specific to Honduras, since it is known for its high yield and disease resistance. It offers unique herbal flavours that tend to taste more savoury than sweet.

The resulting cup reminds us of peach, grape and honey.

Pas mon style habituel (plus "fruité" que "chocolaté+fruité"), mais bon. Je l'ai préféré en latte. C'est selon moi un type de café qui se prête mieux au pour over ou presse française. Difficile à extraire en espresso, le temps d'infusion/d'extraction était inconstant.
