ABOUT THE COFFEE

Honduras El Puente

Gesha Varietal Lot

Marysabel Caballero_(c)Austin Park

We met Marysabel and Moisés last year after a trip to Santa Bárbara, and had the pleasure of hosting them at our roastery in Brooklyn just last month. Marysabel is a fourth-generation coffee farmer, Moisés a renaissance man who originally worked for a Guatemalan coffee exporter. In addition to operating a world-class specialty farming operation spanning over three dozen individual farms in the La Paz region, they run their own dry mill that processes all their coffees, affording them even greater oversight on the quality of their exports.

Marysabel and Moisés first began growing Gesha-variety coffee at Finca El Puente in 2006. The popularity of this variety is attributed to its unique sweetness, ethereal floral notes, and tea-like finish; its notoriety comes from its fickleness, particular cultivation requirements, and low yields. This variety requires year-round attention, but when produced properly it’s unmatched in its elegance and complexity.

Between them, Marysabel and Moisés possess a wealth of knowledge and experience, not to mention enormous warmth and sincerity. Their unstoppable determination toward excellence, their willingness to experiment in order to drive the industry forward, and their genuine passion for specialty coffee cultivation make it our great honor to roast their washed Gesha harvest for you this season.
