This is a fully washed Pacas lot produced by Arturo Paz. Look forward to superbly articulated floral and stone fruit notes alongside a thick, velvety mouthfeel and rich honey-like sweetness. This is Santa Barbara coffee growing at its finest.

Sourcing Story

49th Parallel Crop To Cup Story

La Colmena is located in the Las Flores region of Santa Barbara. Arturo Paz is a 3rd generation producer, his grandfather being one of the first to grow coffee in the area. On his farm he expertly produces predominantly Pacas and Catuai varieties, alongside other crops like plums and pears.

Arturo is also the chief agronomist of coffee exporter BSV (Beneficio San Vicente), joining the family business in 2000. In this role he provides feedback and support to producers across Santa Barbara, elevating the quality region wide. BSV and the Paz family are recognized across the entire specialty coffee industry for their integral role in the now famous quality of Santa Barbara coffees.

Arturo in particular is at the forefront, receiving numerous excellent placements in the Honduras ‘Cup of Excellence’ competition over recent years. His lots are always a highlight for us when we make our annual selections with BSV, demonstrating some of the best qualities the region has to offer.

We can’t say enough how grateful we are to be able to showcase the work Arturo and the rest of the Paz family do in providing us such a fantastic selection of coffees, every year.

Great coffee :)

All of the 49th Parallel coffees I have tried from Honduras have been amazing. This one is no exception. Great flavour profiles. Makes a wonderful cup of coffee to drink while curled up with a great book.
