Coffee from Honduras
About the coffee
As the largest coffee producer in Central America, a coffee from Honduras is an absolute MUST in our advent calendar. Our choice is a washed coffee of the Pacamara variety. This cross of the Pacas and Maragogype varieties is known for its remarkable size. Hacienda Montecristo has made a name for itself by producing coffees with balanced body, deep flavor, rich aroma and medium acidity. The flavor profile is compelling with notes of intense nutty hazelnut, slightly bitter chocolate and tart fruity cherry.
About the farm
Hacienda Montecristo is located in the Mayan mountains of the municipality of Veracruz in the department of Copán, 15 kilometers from the provincial capital of Santa Rosa, in western Honduras. Coffee has been grown there since 1916. At an altitude of 1100 to 1200 meters above sea level, the climate is mild subtropical. The coffee enjoys national and international recognition for its unique qualities and is certified by the Rainforest Alliance.
