From the Vides family, we always get very balanced yet flavorful lots to choose from and this one is no different. Expect a very mouth-filling cup, with a chocolaty base rounded off with soft berry-like acidity. A great companion to holiday sweets!

This year, there’s more good news: by drinking this coffee, you’re helping provide someone in need with much-needed nutrition this holiday season. For every bag of Holiday coffee sold, 49th Parallel will donate 10% of the proceeds to Food Banks Canada. Why does that matter? Because no one should have to go to bed hungry. By buying these coffees, you’re helping spread the holiday spirit to those who need it most.

Sourcing Story

Near the town of Peña Blanca, overlooking beautiful Lake Yojoa, Natividad Benitez grows both Pacas and Bourbon varieties on his farm, El Ocotillo. In 2005, Natividad won the prestigious Honduras Cup of Excellence, a competition for the best coffee in Honduras. The win changed Natividad’s life and helped reshape how coffee is produced in the entire Santa Barbara region. For Natividad, the win helped him to build a small de-pulper and tiled fermentation tanks, as he works constantly to improve quality and create a sustainable farm for his family. Neighbouring farmers, inspired by the higher price Natividad was getting for his coffee, went to him for advice. And, with the help of Beneficio San Vicente, the local coffee exporter and agronomy expert, many went from producing commodity grade product to high-quality specialty coffee.

Over a decade later, Santa Barbara is now famous for its distinct, delicious coffee. And after ten years of working with Natividad, we're glad to share yet another fantastic Bourbon lot from El Ocotillo!

It's quite amazing. It's got a nice cocoa grit with a bakers chocolate top flavor and a berry finish. Seems like on the darker light side. Definitely darker then the other holiday filters from previous years. But when I think of winter I think of dark roasts anyways. Definitely can cozy up with this with good feelings and vibes. I really appreciate it.
