Coffees from Honduras can be amazing when they are from the right places and are processed well. They often have more complexity, depth and richness than most other Central American coffees. El Diamante is a small farm in the Western part of Honduras. The cup has notes of dark grapes, red apple, almonds and florals. The mouthfeel is buttery.
Francisco Alvarado is part of a new movement of small farmers who invest in owning micro mills to process quality coffees on their farms. Rather than just selling cherries to traders. The coffees are handpicked, separated by varietal, washed, and dried slowly on raised beds.
