Description

This is a fully washed lot of Pacas variety from Carlos Damian's farm, Bella Vista. In the cup expect a buttery mouthfeel, refreshing, palate cleaning acidity like ripe pear alongside sweetness reminiscent of vanilla.

SOURCING STORY

We first met Carlos Damian in February of 2016, at Elio’s Diaz farm ‘Piedras Amarillas’, located in Santa Barbara, Honduras. Right before trying his sample, we wondered if it could be graded as specialty knowing that the coffee was coming from his first harvest. Carlos’ Bella Vista could not only be specialty - it landed as one of our best Santa Barbara lots that year. After his second harvest, which showed that his coffee could be even better, Carlos built drying tables at his property and did a major renovation inside the house. He’s growing primarily Pacas and Catimor varietals. His coffee quality has been nothing but improving. With continued investments in the farm, he's built his own drying tables and fermentation tanks and purchased an electric depupler. He has also moved to self-processing his coffee, to ensure greater control over the quality. Most of his farm is planted with a variety of avocado called Aguacate Anise, which is unique to the area. He’s got other trees like guama for shade and adding nitrogen to the soil.
