The farm of Jose Noel Mendez is located in the Buenos Aires community of Honduras. We found the farms to be quite high in this region, the lower part of the coffee lands planted around 1600 meters, and all the way up near 1800. Much of the coffee planted in the area are local Catimor types, displaying high resistance to the devastating coffee plant disease "roya", or leaf rust.
In the cup expect a balanced interplay of bittering and sweet coffee qualities, restrained burned sugar sweetness, and roasted cacao nibs with a rustic finish. Mouthfeel weighty and dense, making for a pleasant texture on the palate.
