We taste

chocolate, pineapple, toffee

...in this coffee.

For years we have been offering stellar selections from the Los Chelazos group located in the northern department of Chalatenango – along the southwest border of Honduras. The area is rich in biological diversity and included within the Montecristo Trifinio biosphere reserve.

This year’s selection is from the pacamara variety, a hybrid variety first developed in El Salvador. The seeds of the pacamara variety tend to be quite large, and the flavor is big as well! Fresh off the grind you’ll find sweet chocolate aromatics with a hint of anise. As with years past, a pineapple flavor note prevails and is joined by a toffee like sweetness throughout. Delish! This being our only selection from El Salvador for the year, you all better grab some before it is gone.

We buy, roast, and sell coffee. On a surface level, this sounds simple enough. But buying coffee in a way we are proud of and in a way that those who buy our coffee are proud of is often complex, challenging, and hard work. We find ourselves on a continuum of buying and selling that progresses towards more sustainable, meaningful and equitable. The below information provides basic information for each lot on where we are on this journey, and where this lot falls within our relationship chart.
