For this particular coffee we worked with our friend Grant at Mountain Coffee https://mountaincoffee.ca/ Grant has worked in coffee for quite some time and was the driving force behind BEANSTOCK, an annual gathering of coffee roasters, importers, innovators, & enthusiasts. The guy even put us up at his apartment! He’s super sweet. His coffee’s super sweet. Did we mention he’s from Vancouver? ; ) Sweeeeet.
Honduras has always been a favourite for me in terms of coffee’s I’d drink every day. Complexity & so much balance. Full of nice deep sugars, ripe peach, I think the other aspect of this coffee that blew me away is the story of how this farm really went from ramshackle to a legit operation. Selin Resinos & other farmers within this small area work together with Cocafelol Co-op to take leftover pollutants that occur due to coffee processing, ferment them in their own hand built facilities, & turn them into fertilizer! The positive impact on the environment these people have is incredible. A tremendous amount of work is done by them and their families to not only produce amazing coffee, but to return the favour to mother earth by eliminating the pollution that would destroy land & contaminate water otherwise.

We’re so proud to work with Selin & Family!
