This coffee is collected from our Lenca farms (Guaralupe Association). The story began in 1915 with the patriarch of the family, Felipe García. Later on, the family grew and new last names came in the family like Urquia’s. We made our first shipment to the U.S. in 2013. Over the years, more family members and neighbors came together. Total 25 Farmers and we create Asociación de Productores de Café Guaralape. Guaralape means “Springs on the top of the mountain”. Guaralape river cross on the middle of the town Marcala, La Paz. This region is located in the high mountains in the southwest of Honduras. Here was where the country reaped one of the first high-quality coffees in the early nineteenth century.
Coffee Features: Vibrant but balanced acidity, soft, plush mouthfeel, plenty of sweetness with hints of blackberry.
