Description

To celebrate the opening of our newest location in North Vancouver, we present: North Shore!

We chose one of our favorite and most exciting coffees for the occasion, a fully washed, 100% Parainema variety lot produced by Juan Evangelista on his farm in Honduras, La Maravilla.

Look forward to a creamy, syrupy mouthfeel and bright red fruit acidity like pomegranate or red currants, balanced by a deep baking spice sweetness reminiscent of a root beer float.

SOURCING STORY

Each year, when visiting Juan Evangelista, he proudly takes us to his nursery. “More Pacamara!” he proudly exclaims. With every good story, there’s a twist. Juan’s variety is not Pacamara, but instead, Parainema - a hybrid coffee variety that is resistant to rust and nematode infestations. This variety began in 1981 as part of a series of experiments to address producers' issues with disease and pests and was known as Sarchimor T-5269. First plantings were in Costa Rica from 2006 - 2008, and it was introduced to Honduras in 2010 as “Parainema”. Juan’s seeds came from his neighbor Eulogio. When Eulogio originally received the seeds, they were listed as Pacamara, but now we believe that was a typo since the physical markers of the plants identify as Parainema. We’ve been buying coffee from Juan for over 9 years now and he’s an absolute pleasure to work with. His coffees are always superbly consistent, reliable and unmistakable in their character. We’ve recently been lucky enough to try some offerings from some of Juan’s children who are now growing their own Parainema, continuing the family tradition.

A nice smooth medium roast coffee

I love this coffee and bought it as my special spring break brewed coffee at home. It has turned into a very long spring break as I keep buying more!

One of the best medium roast

Absolutely love this coffee. I have never had such a bold medium roast that had the taste of the origin along with it. A nice easy pep and also easy on the stomach. Truly a new favorite.
