Our medium roast is one of my personal favorites right now. I made a Kalita Wave out of it and was able to produce a very tasty cup. Lots of body and rich flavors of chocolate, molasses, and hints of hazelnut. As it cools, there’s a mild acidity that creates a bit more complexity. Maybe enough acidity to call off putting a lot of cream in this type of roast. This would be great for drip coffee or for pour overs!

Productores de Lempira is made up of coffees from a few different farms in the Lempira region of southwestern Honduras. OK, one of the farms is actually just on the other side of the eastern border in Intibuca, but we’ve gone with the Lempira name nonetheless. The region of Lempira gets its name from the indigenous Lenca chief who in 1530, defended the region from Spanish conquistadores. The Lenca people still inhabit this part of Honduras, tucked in the shadows of both the Celaque mountain and Pacavita volcano. “Lempira” is also the name of a disease-resistant, high yielding coffee hybrid, produced by the Instituto Hondureño del Café (IHCAFE).
