Bomba De Fruta #3
Origin: Marcala, Honduras
Producers: The Caballero Family
Bomba de Fruta #3 is the name given to this lot by Marysabel Caballero - an incredible third-generation coffee producer in Marcala, Honduras. We've had coffees from the Caballeros in years past - and we always look forward to their bold flavors! Marysabel and her husband Moises have had a big impact on the reputation of Honduran specialty coffee, producing lots with exacting quality standards and investing in sustainable farming practices. They make organic fertilizer that repurposes coffee cherry pulp and they plant orange, avocado, and banana trees amongst their coffee to increase biodiversity on their farms (and to provide free snacks for their workers).
The Caballeros have only been producing natural coffees for a few years, but this one definitely lives up to its name! We're tasting intensely rich fruit flavors, blackberry and red wine come to mind. There's a nice chocolatey backbone as well - making for a brew that's as decadent as it is delicious. This is a repeat-brewer for sure!
