Description

Washed Bourbon and Catuai ¹
Guaspololo, La Paz, Honduras ²

A coffee grower for 40 years, managing old stock varieties that are becoming increasingly rare in Honduras due to the rampant spread of coffee leaf rust, it is our joy to present to the specialty world the lifelong labour of Don Facundo Maldonado and his family. The soaring altitude of near 1900masl leads to a slow cherry maturation, developing deep sweetness of brown sugar, backed with jammy notes of green fruit and a hazelnut finish.

¹ Processing & Varietal

Washed Bourbon and Catuai

² Region of Origin

Guaspololo, La Paz, Honduras

Harvested at the soaring altitude of near 1900masl leads to a slow cherry maturation, developing deep sweetness of brown sugar, backed with jammy notes of green fruit and a hazelnut finish.

Many coffee producers are forced to accept whatever price is offered, without any opportunity to offer consensus.

This is not that coffee.

Meet Facundo Maldonado

"Selling coffee like that made me old,” said Don Facundo with a sly smile, standing in the shadow of his towering heirloom Bourbon and Catuai trees. He was referring to selling conventionally, a system in which he and others loaded mules with plump cherries and guided them down dusty mountain roads to the town of Santiago de Puringla to be sold in the plaza for whatever price of the day was offered.

Facundo Maldonado is a coffee grower for 40 years, managing old stock varieties that are becoming increasingly rare in Honduras due to the rampant spread of coffee leaf rust.

We're able to connect with Facundo, along with other Honduran coffee growers in Selguapa, Chaguite & Guaspololo via Cafe Raga. Started in 2018 by Rony Gamez, Cafe Raga is a local support network that offers training in fermentation, drying, and more recently, soil analysis. This is Facundo's first year connecting with Rony and the group and it is our joy to present to the specialty world the lifelong labour of Don Facundo Maldonado and his family.
