Honduran Microlot

We’ve been buying Honduran coffee from Union MicroFinanza (UMF) for over a year now. UMF provides microloans and in-country assistance to farmers. With the help of UMF, the farmers have been producing better and better coffees to the point where this year the best lots were separated out. These were offered as microlots instead of being blended together at the co-op. A premium was paid to the farmer for these coffees. We purchased all of the lot from a single farmer, Filadelpho Jaurez based solely  on it’s flavor. It has tropical fruit up front with notes of honeysuckle and the pleasant bittersweetness of grapefruit.
