The combination of apple and sweetness of toffee and caramel,  makes this a wonderful espresso. Very inviting served with steamed milk as a latte or cappuccino, or a flat white.

The warm apple combined with the caramel and almonds makes this a superb coffee.

More about the coffee and where it comes from….

El Liquidambo farm is located in the village of Las Acacias in the municipality of Marcala, Department of La Paz, at an altitude of 1410 meters above sea level.

Maria is a small coffee producer who has had a tough life following the death of her husband in 2006, which is why she decided to take over the farm with her two children. This decision meant that one of her sons had to postpone his professional studies at a university in Tegucigalpa to work on the family farm “Liquidambo”. This small family farm is run with the love and memory of her husband, and for her children and grandchildren to whom she wants to leave a legacy.

This is the first time she has participated in the COE competition, doing incredibly well obtaining 6th place. Her farm produces Catuai and Bourbon varieties at a height of 1409 meters above sea level, and she has gradually improved her farm with the support of IHCAFE who help with fertilizers and technical support for the management of her farm, and now she can see the results she is filled with much satisfaction.

Coffee process begins with the selection of ripe cherries; Maria does not have a milling machine so she hires in this service, though she always monitors the implementation of the processing and drying of the coffee. Her dream is to continue cultivating an excellent quality coffee in order to give education to her children.

Previously she sold her coffee only locally, but now with this experience in the preparation of speciality coffees she is hoping to sell her coffee to International markets, to improve living conditions and to reward the efforts and sacrifice of her children. Currently 4 of her 6 children have been able to go to university because of the money she has been able to generate through her award-winning coffee!
