Broad River Roasters is pleased to offer a delicious coffee from Honduras. This coffee is produced by dedicated farmers in the midst of biological reserves and beautiful lush mountains in the western region of Honduras.
Located in the western part of Honduras, Pacavita is surrounded by biological reserves and mountain ranges. The rainy season results in beautiful cherries, and the clear dry season during harvest allows producers to sun dry coffees once they are washed. The high-altitude weather, rich clay soil, and warm sun ensure that the integrity and quality of the beans is preserved from start to finish.
Two primary producers contributed to this lot, Silvestre Vasquez and Joel Lopez. Silvestre is always pushing for a better quality and has expanded his farm into higher altitudes of a mountain called Pico Congolon which is surrounded by the Reserva Biologica de Opalaca and Reserva Biologica Volcan Pacavita. Joel Lopez is a fourth-generation coffee producer. He runs the farm Los Lesquines, where his family began growing coffee in 1865. The farm produces mainly Bourbon, Caturra and Catuai varieties, with a total of 67 hectares in production

Why we love this coffee:
This coffee is a delightful rush of complexity! You will find a harmony of fruit, cocoa, and nut flavors in the cup. It has a rich heavy body and medium acidity...just bright enough but not sharp on the tongue.
The Pacavita is delightful as a drip or pourover coffee. We also love it as a single origin espresso.
