I didn't know what to expect when I accepted a meeting with Olimpia, a woman who has been working on her own in the USA to help promote this organic coffee from the El Merendon mountains in Honduras. But I was amazed when I opened a bag of this coffee and was rewarded with one of the most aromatic profiles we have seen in years. This is a dark roast Arabica blend, with strong tones of butter and chocolate and an amazingly persistent and pleasing aftertaste that never fails to make me want another cup.
I knew I had to buy a few bags (all that she had brought with her to the meeting) and put them on sale for the "reminder" email sale. I would love to bring in a few sacks of green beans and try multi-temperatures roasts with this coffee, it has so many compelling tasting notes that I know I can bring them together into a wonderful symphony.
The Social Pastoral Service of San Vincent de Paul in San Pedro Sula donates all proceeds to the welfare of the collective, to build schools and provide work opportunities for the families of the region, to help preserve the integrity of rural communities. This is a cause that is near and dear to our hearts. There are a lot of wonderful causes in the world, but when you can support one and enjoy some really unique and delicious coffee at reasonable direct trade prices, well, we are all over it.
These are 400 gram bags (over 14 ounces) and we have mostly whole bean with a few drip grind. Limit 1 per order so more people can try it, thank you! When these are sold out we will ask Olimpia to bring more.
Fans of our dark roasts of earthy coffees such as the Brazil Adrano, Lintong and Liberica will not want to miss this. Certified Organic by Bio Latina.
Note: we sold out during the previous sale but Olimpia has been able to deliver some more bags, mostly ground, so we are listing this again :-)
