A few years ago Jobneel Caceres Dios bought a small piece of land in an area not too far away from his first farm Finca Nacimiento that should be well known among our followers. He wanted to plant more coffee and also to plant some rare cultivars like Geisha. This year is the second year he was able to produce Geisha coffee from this new farm and the quality is as expected much better than his first harvest in 2022.

I find this harvest to be more floral and intense compared to the first harvest. Although it is not as expressive as the Geisha coffees from the Caballero family, produced further south in Honduras, this is still a delicious coffee with delicate and subtle floral and citric flavours.  From experience the quality will normally improve when the trees grow older so we believe this coffee will become better and better in the years to come.   

The Geisha cultivar is famous for its floral and citric cup profile. This Ethiopian cultivar was re-discovered by the famous Hacienda la Esmeralda in Panama in the early 2000's where it continues to break price records on online coffee auctions year after year.

Picking and sorting

  • The coffee is selectively hand picked by hired pickers under supervision of Jobneel. Cherries are hand sorted and floated in clean water before they are processed.

Depupling, fermenting & washing

  • After de-pulping the parchment coffee is dry-fermented for about 12-14 hours. Then the parchment is rinsed with clean water before it is dry fermented for another 12 – 24 hours, depending on the ambient temperature. After fermentation the coffee is washed in a channel where the light beans /  floaters are removed.

Drying

  • The coffee is bagged and transported to Jobneel’s house where the coffee is dried on raised beds covered with shade for 14 – 20 days. During drying, Jobneel and his family removes all the impurities and defect parchment coffee from the good coffee. When the coffee is finished drying he packs the coffee in air tight grain pro bags for storage before the coffee gets milled, vacuum packed and exported.

    Finca el Vikingo is a new farm that Jobneel Caceres Dios purchased and planted with Geisha coffee in 2019. Jobneel also owns and runs  finca Nacimiento with his wife Fany. They were the first farmers I started working with and buying directly from back in 2009 and since then we have been able to systematically improve their coffees to become one of the best in their area, an area that is by many considered to produce the best coffees in Honduras.


    Finca el Vikingo is a small coffee farm situated in el Sauce on the Santa Barbara Mountain near lake Yojoa in Honduras. The farm is located in a mini-valley at 1450 - 1490  meters above sea level and is surrounded by a forest which creates a unique micro climate.  Jobneel has planted nitrogen fixing native inga trees and avocado trees to create a natural shade canopy over the coffee trees.
