Honduras Maria Bonita Natural
This natural processed coffee is grown by Pedro Turcios on Finca Maria Bonita which is located in the La Paz region of Honduras. The coffee is a product of our direct trade relationship with the farm. This varietal is a unique cultivar known as Parainema. It is a member of the Sarchimor hybrid family. Sarchimors are hybrids of the Costa Rican Villa Sarchi variety and the Timor hybrid. The Honduran coffee institute, IHCAFE, created the Parainema cultivar by selectively breeding offspring of those two plants with the goal of increasing the resistance to coffee leaf rust and preserving the cups quality. In 2017, a Parainema won the Honduras Cup of Excellence competition. We are proud to bring the bright, fruitful flavors of Pedro's crop to our roastery.
