Balbina Sabillón

If we can say one definitive thing about Honduran coffees, it’s that there’s no single Honduran profile. The country is a veritable cornucopia of flavors, elevations, micro-climates, and varieties, which means our offerings from the origin are also distinctive. This coffee will not taste like El Rincon, which, in turn, did not taste like Marta Vasquez. Plus, this lot is 100% Parainema variety. Parainema is a Honduran pedigree selection from the Sarchimor family, bred for resistance to leaf rust and pests. It needs a lot of soil nutrition, but it’s well-adapted to medium altitudes. This is especially useful for third-generation producer Balbina, whose farm sits at just 1300 masl.

On the cupping table, this is bright and full of dynamic acidity, like many citrusy East African coffees. We're enjoying this coffee's wildflower and citrus blossom aromas wafting over caramel sweetness. It pops with fresh raspberry notes, and rounds out with a spicy-herby-syrupy goodness we also find in root beer. We're really pleased to have this coffee back on the menu, and we hope it's appearance is a sign of more good things to come in 2022.
