Description:

CAFESCOR stands for Cafes Especiales Corquin, a certified-organic Fairtrade association of 131 producers that was founded in 2014 in Lempira, Honduras. The farmers hail from several municipalities, and they own small parcels of land in the mountainous region, with its fertile loamy soil. The producers here grow under shadetrees, which provide plenty of organic material for composting and fertilization. The processing facility of CAFESCOR is located in a central point between where the producers live and work. After picking, the coffee is fermented underwater for 15–18 hours, then washed once to remove the mucilage.

This process produces an incredibly clean cup profile that, along with its bright acidity and mellow chocolate and nut flavors, will be sure to be the perfect complement to your early morning routine, afternoon snack, after dinner wind down, or perhaps all three!
