Las Lajas, HondurasDetour Coffee Roasters
An elegant and round profile with slight floral aromatics makes way to a silky texture and flavours of candied orange, green apple and almond.
Antonio Ramirez became one of the very first to grow coffee in the remote Comayagua mountain range over 30 years ago when he found coffee plants sprinkled throughout a piece of land that he took over. Through the early years, he found their colder weather, due to elevation, was too harsh for the common variety (Pacas) in Honduras to survive, so he focused his efforts on his Typica and Bourbon plants. He continued to grow his coffee production for over 27 years to support his growing family through the only method available to him, selling coffee in cherry to local intermediaries for low prices. It was only 2 years ago that Antonio was able to access the true value and opportunity for his coffee when he found enough support to begin processing his own cherry and selling it for improved prices to the global specialty market.
