Honduras Piedras Amarillas Bourbon
DIRECT TRADE COFFEE
This is a small separation of Bourbon variety from Elio Diaz's farm 'Piedras Amarillas', located in Santa Barbara, Honduras. We kept it separate from his regular crop because of its explosively complex and decadent cup profile – expect a lingering, concentrated sweetness like grape jam complemented by crisper, brighter notes of peach and tropical fruits.
Elio Diaz is the owner of “Piedras Amarillas”, located in Santa Barbara, Honduras. Here he is growing both Bourbon and Pacas varieties. We’ve been purchasing his coffees as far back as 2015, with each year just getting better and better. This came to a head in 2019 when he placed 3rd in Project Origins ‘Best of Honduras’ late harvest auction with a lot of washed Pacas. We’re overjoyed to be able to work with such an exceptional producer. His coffees always remind us of all that we love about the Santa Barbara terroir. Explosive, complex and saturated with fruit flavors.
