About this coffee

Finca Yire returns in 2016 with a new Varietal roasted for filter.

The Finca Yire farm is located in La Paz, in one of the highest and coldest parts of Honduras, near the border with El Salvador. Juan Carlos and the other small producers we work with there are part of a new movement of farmers who are processing and drying their own coffee. This particular coffee was fermented for 36 hours before being washed with water from a local spring. It is first dried on open-air screens, before being moved to the undercover raised beds, aiming for slow drying of 17 to 20 days to completion. This group is pursuing quality and are aiming to increase the volume of ‘Specialty Grade’ coffee exported from their country.
