Honduras Mi Mundo
A wild and untamed coffee coming in from Santa Bárbara, Honduras, this honey process Parainema variety is as intense as it is mystifying. Loaded up front with juicy tropical fruits, enjoy the mouthwatering intensity before the finish-- which turns on a dime, and melts into sweet tootsie roll and sticky toffee pudding. It is a dynamic flavor profile.
Finca Mi Mundo is run by Secundino Sabillon Alfaro and his family. It is a part of the highly-regarded Benefico San Vicente Specialty Coffee Program. The farm is 2.8 hectares and grows 100% Parainema.

Filter: This has been a very fun coffee to dial in, and so far offers dramatically different cups based on input parameters. At 1:18, high EY, the cup is very tropical, with clear flavor separations. At 1:16, low EY, expect a very intense, jammy presentation, with a heavy body, melting tootsie roll finish. There is not really a preferred way to brew this one, so have fun with it!
