Tasting Notes: Raisin, Brown Sugar, Berry
Origin: Marcala, Honduras
Producers: Marysabel Caballero
This lot of washed Catuai was grown by Marysabel Caballero and her husband Moises Herrera on their Finca El Puente farm in Honduras. Marysabel, a third-generation coffee farmer, inherited the land from her father Don Fabio, who still helps out with various projects around the farms Marysabel & Moises manage. Marysabel has recently increased focus on environmental sustainability at her farms - revitalizing soil with organic fertilizers & planting oranges, avocados, bananas, and flowers to encourage biodiversity (and to provide healthy snacks for coffee pickers during harvest). Marysabel's coffees consistently stand out from other producers in her area for their strong flavors, which has won her top prices and several awards at Honduran coffee events. We admire producers like Marysabel that are constantly improving their farms and consistently raising the bar for cup quality - we couldn't be happier to share her coffee with you.
El Pantanal is a great breakfast cup, with tasting notes that remind us of a warm bowl of oatmeal: brown sugar sweetness paired with a tangy note of raisin and a hint of berry brightness fill out the profile. El Pantanal is a coffee that's smooth and sweet without too much acidity or spice, and we think it really hits the spot for starting your day.
