We Taste: Almond, Cola, Tart Cherry Process: Washed Varietal: Parainema Elevation: 1,480 masl
Walter Bautista is putting out some beautiful coffees, and this one is no exception. This washed Honduran coffee has the kind of cola sweetness and nutty almond flavor that keeps you coming back for more, and just enough tart cherry to make things interesting.
Where is it from?
Walter Bautista is a fourth-generation coffee farmer. It wasn’t until a couple of years ago, in 2016, that Walter planted his own 2000 trees, though, beginning the career that has been handed down to him through the generations. His farm, Medalla Milagrosa, is located in Las Flores in the Santa Barbara region of Honduras, a rainy hillside area with rich mountain soil. The geography famously makes it difficult to execute one crucial aspect of coffee processing: drying. The rains, though, have created a special challenge to farmers and producers in the area, resulting in the investment in drying systems and the subsequent clear, fruity flavors that are unique to Santa Barbara coffees.
