Description

Origin: Kellton Urrutia, Finca Las Minas, Erandique, Celaque, Honduras

This single farmer lot comes from Kellton Urrutia, a quality-focused farmer in Celaque. As Honduras’ coffee crop has experienced significant damage from rust disease, most farmers choose to grow rust-resistant varieties rather than traditional heirloom ones; this resistance to disease often comes at the cost of cup quality. Remarkably, this lot is 100% Catimor, a Robusta-hybrid variety known for not producing the kind of acidity and sweetness specialty coffee fans look for – but we’re getting some really special flavors and quality nonetheless. Expect bright, white wine-like flavors of grapefruit zest, tangerine, and white currant.
