We have long wanted to work with the Caballero family in Honduras and are very happy we were able to source this lot from them. Marysabel Caballero and her husband Moises Herrera are working with over 200 hectares of coffee trees. They are 2nd and 3rd generation coffee farmers and have been awarded many times for their amazing cup quality.
Since inheriting the farm from her father, Marysabel has invested a lot of time and resources, both in new equipment and in the planting of new coffee varieties. The main cultivar is Catuaí but they also grow Java, Pacamara and some geishas. They produce their own organic fertilizer which has greatly contributed to the farm’s soil health, and hence the plants’ nutrients. They grow oranges, avocados, flowers and bananas to maintain biodiversity and provide shade for the coffee trees.
The overall cup quality has increased to the point where many of their lots are scoring 87-88. Marysabel and Moises have done very well in the Cup of Excellence for many years, even achieving 3rd price at the annual SCAA “Coffee of the year” competition in 2010.
This specific lot is a natural processed Catuaí. Drying natural coffees is very difficult in Marcala where it’s generally wet and windy during the drying season. For his natural lots, Moises is only picking the ripest cherry and drying them on covered raised beds. Initially the layer of cherry on the bed is very thin so the coffee can dry faster. As it dries, the layer is made thicker. But still drying can take up to 40 days depending on the temperatures.
The cup has a rich dark fruit aroma ; fruit like red berries, black grape and plum flavors. It has a rich and dense mouthfeel, well-structured and intense. Complex and floral finish.

Roasting & Freshness
We aim to deliver fresh but rested coffee you can dig into right away. That means most coffee we ship is 2-10 days old. If you prefer the hyperfresh stuff, let us know in the order notes box on your cart page. Our coffees taste best 1-6 weeks after roasting but can be enjoyed for up to 3 months or more if vacuum packed and/or freezed.
