Last year we began a new relationship with our friends at Finca Terrerito in Honduras with their neighboring farm San Sebastian. This year, we are excited to also bring in coffees from Finca Terrerito’s sister farm Finca La Unica. Previously included in our Summer Sun blend, we wanted to release the La Unica natural on its own for a short time so folks can compare processing with the La Unica honey.
Located at 1400 meters above sea level under the watchful eye of Mount Tenan, the fifty-acre farm is home to rare micro-lots. Formerly a cattle farm, Finca La Unica was purchased in 2016 by Leticia, a 5th generation coffee farmer, Leticia is proud to be an example for women by owning her own land and taking ownership of a role typically reserved for men in Honduras. Changes to infrastructure include the addition of sleeping quarters for 50 coffee pickers, bathrooms, and kitchens with clean water.
Visit La Unica and you'll find hidden gems throughout our gorgeous rows of coffee trees, whether it be stunning views, cacao trees, lemons the size of your head, or wild berries.
This coffee is wild and vibrant, with intense fruit notes and a wine-like finish.
We taste: plum, port wine, chocolate covered raisins
