Honduras - El CaracolHorsham Coffee Roaster
Tasting notes: Cherry, dark chocolate, red grape
We've been buying this outstanding coffee from Fausto Melgar in Honduras for three years as part of the One to One project run by DR Wakefield. This small farm is just 1.1 hectares in size and produces about 30 x 69kg bags of coffee every year. We have selected a small 10 bag microlot from this years harvest.
Fausto grows Caturra trees on his farm and is organic certified. The coffee is harvested between December and April by hand and processed on site using the washed method following by drying under the protection of a solar drier. Once the coffee has been hand sorted and dried to a 12% moisture content it is taken to the local dry mill to be rested and prepared for export.
