Las Palmas Yellow Honey Honduras Coffee

We will be donating 50p from every coffee bag sold to help raise money for the Honduran relief fund.

Honey processing is where the coffee is depulped (skin and fruit pulp removed) but dried without the sticky “mucilage” being removed from the seeds. After depulping, this coffee has been rested for 6 hours on raised beds, before being dried over 15-20 days. The coffee presents as softly sweet with a coating mouthfeel and clean citric acidity.

This is one of two coffees in The Socorro Series which we are showcasing from Gloria Esperanza Meija. Gloria took over management of Las Palmas in 2011, after injury left her husband unable to work. Shortly after, the farm was decimated by coffee leaf rust. Unable to produce exportable coffee for two years, she was very close to giving up. In 2016 Gloria decided to join the Falcon Speciality Agromony Project, and since then her coffee quality has risen a staggering 9 points on the SCA scale, allowing her to earn 167% more for her coffee.

She now produces various lots, like this yellow honey coffee. Alongside this, she teaches organic farming methods to other producers who, together, create organic fertiliser on her land.

This coffee supports hurricane relief efforts in Honduras.

This is the second of a series of four Honduran coffees from the Aruco cooperative. We have sourced these through Falcon Speciality to support relief efforts in the wake of hurricanes Eta and Iota. The region suffered extensive damage to infrastructure and farms and saw many producers lose their coffee harvest.

We will be donating 50p from every coffee bag sold from the series to Falcon’s fund.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
