Nicaragua La Esperanza Honey
**All local pick up orders will remain available for 30 days. After 30 days they will be donated to a local charity due to storage space.**
This is the next special micro-lot from Luis Alberto Balladarez, from his farm, La Esperanza. La Esperanza is basically a twin mountain facing Un Regalo de Dios- another one of his farms. La Esperanza has a modest elevation, but is absolutely lush with great tree coverage and a flourishing micro-climate. Luis grows several varieties of coffee in La Esperanza, and most of them are like the lot we just ran out of that we named "La Esperanza". This coffee is an entirely different flavor profile.
Luis separated pacamara, a high quality hybrid variety, and expertly honey processed it. We were absolutely floored at the complexity of this coffee, and were struck at how unique the flavor profile was compared to the honeys from his other farms (substantially different than El Zapote). This coffee is loaded with sweetness, syrupy, and had a complex brightness reminiscent of mixed berries and citrus. It is one of our favorite selections we are offered this year, and we are sure you're going to enjoy it.
