In January of this year, I was given the opportunity to travel through the coffee-growing regions of Honduras and Nicaragua, where some of our producer’s farms are located. I’ve been in the coffee business for a few years and this was my first chance to see the process in such an intimate fashion. Prior to this trip, my perspective on the fair trade movement and the coffee industry, in general, had been missing that crucial element. I challenged myself to...

This special coffee has a taste of honey, tropical fruit, and vanilla. The Honey process uses only perfectly ripe cherries and creates a unique coffee that's between a natural and washed processes. If you have had our Piurra Gold (natural process) and Colombia (washed process), think of this Honduras as the middle ground between those coffees.
