Honduras Fredy Sabillon Washed Parainema Micro Lot
Prescription Coffee Lab
Honduras is one of our favorite origins of specialty coffee. As the leading exporter of coffee in Central American, Honduras is not only producing a lot of coffee, but some really amazing offerings at that. This year we are pleased to have a new varietal of coffee that was developed in Honduras to help combat coffee tree disease. This varietal known as Parainema is a hybrid varietal and is producing some sustainable and really great tasting lots.
This particular coffee is especially sweet with a strong presence of apple and an marked kiwi like acidity. There is also a very pleasing walnut note to the coffee that really helps round out the cup. We love this one as a drip, but it is also one of the most exciting shots of espresso we have pulled in a while!
Fredy Sabillon began producing coffee in 2006 when he and his brother purchased a small farm. After years of hard work, the Sabillon brothers planted their first lots of specialty coffee with the advice of their neighbors. They produced their first specialty-grade harvest in 2018. Fredy says that the key part of producing coffee is staying on top of the different management tasks and making sure everything is done on time.
