La Paz is a southwestern department of Honduras that is bordered by El Salvador. The region is known for its coffee production, boasting the first and only "protected origin denomination" for coffee in the country due to exceptional soil quality, agricultural and processing techniques.
This coffee is sourced from Montgomery Melghem, an independent producer in Marcala, La Paz. Finca San Pablo was founded in 1915 by Pablo Melghem, Montgomery’s grandfather. For over a century, the farm has developed the experience and a tradition for excellent methods in production, harvesting and post-harvesting, rendering a bean of excellent quality. Montgomery is a third generation coffee farmer, having taken up management of the farm from his father Rolando.
The resulting cup reminds us of caramel, apple-rhubarb jam and vanilla.
