Our coffee is a natural-processed Java varietal from the renowned Herrera-Caballero family. This exotic arabica varietal dates back to the 19th century when it was brought to the island of Java by Dutch settlers. It was originally thought to be a Typica selection but genetic analysis has revealed that Java is rather a selection from an Ethiopian landrace. Its taste profile bears a resemblance to Gesha, also of Ethiopian origin, so you can expect something unordinary!
Marysabel Caballero and her husband Moises Herrera are 2nd and 3rd generation coffee farmers and have been rewarded many times for their commitment to developing coffee quality in Honduras. Moises brought his own farms into the family business and together they now have 17 different farms and are successful in producing quality coffees and have contributed to the improving reputation of Honduran quality coffees. The Caballeros are extremely committed to environmental sustainability. A lot of their energy and focus goes towards improving the soil of their farms to ensure a healthy growing environment for their coffee shrubs. Oranges, avocados, flowers, bananas and other fruits are also grown at the farms, mainly for the pickers to eat and to create biodiversity that ensures good growing conditions and shade for the coffee trees.
