Marysabel y Moisés - Lot 29
ROAST | MEDIUM
ORIGIN | MARCALA, LA PAZ, HONDURAS
NOTES | RED CHERRY, SWEET CITRUS, BROWN SUGAR
We are thrilled to host Honduras's own coffee power couple, Marysabel Caballero and Moisés Herrera, on our menu once again! As far as coffee stories go, theirs is somewhat of a fairytale.
For her part, Marysabel Caballero is a fourth generation coffee producer whose family ties to the industry date all the way back to 1907. Moisés Herrara is a newbie by contrast - he got his start in coffee while working for a Guatemalan coffee exporter in the early 1990's. In 1992, a work trip - or was it fate? - brought Moisés to very same region where Marysabel and her family had been growing high-quality coffee for nearly a hundred years. The two were married in 1996, and they immediately began planting and cultivating their first farm together, La Maltide.
What began as two lovebirds and one farm in the municipality of Marcala has since grown to an empire of thirty-five distinct coffee farms, each bearing the couple's names - including Finca Los Lirios, the farm which yielded today's highly anticipated release, Lot 29.
Processing: This lot underwent traditional Honduran Washed processing protocols.
In the cup: With notes of red cherry, sweet citrus, and brown sugar, this coffee is supremely "seeker-friendly" and delicious. It's a very good example of a Washed Honduran coffee, but it's not overly dramatic in presentation. Very clean and VERY sweet, this coffee is the perfect cup to share with both coffee professionals and your grandparents alike.
