ABOUT THE SET
Santa Bárbara Set
We’ve long loved Santa Bárbara coffees for their fruit-forward flavor profile, a pleasantly jarring experience compared to the mild, milk-chocolatey taste of most Central American offerings. The finest Santa Bárbara coffees are dense on the tongue, with saturated sugars, jammy textural tones, and tropical-fruit acidity. They’re for adventurous palates, though they provide structured sweetness anyone can appreciate.
We’ve released these four coffees—Honduras El Guaco, Honduras La Colmena, Honduras La Manzanita, and Honduras El Pino—in conjunction with the publication of our third volume of Parchment. For three generations, the Paz family has championed smallholder farmers in the region; their story, told through interviews with Fidel Paz and Benjamin Paz and an essay by Dillon Edwards, reminds us of both the challenges and the hope for specialty coffee in Honduras.
The Parchment Volume 003 broadsheet is available to order exclusively as part of our Santa Bárbara Set. Producer info cards with portraits by Rich Gilligan accompany each coffee. We hope you’ll enjoy these stories and these exceptional coffees in good company.
