Gorgeously smooth with a lovely depth of flavour, this Honduras Finca Liquidámbar is a proper all rounder. Great Espresso & really tasty brewed coffee, it has chocolate notes with grape & caramel almond finish.
Finca Liquidámbar was set up by a pioneering group of individuals passionate about organic coffee production. They turn coffee waste into organic fertilizer; with pulp developed compost processed by Californian red worm. They also use the mucilage to make different products that serve as foliar fertilizer to the farm. Some experiments they have made with organic fertilizer have been so successful they have brought the technique to Cocafelol Cooperative and rolled them out to other organic coffee producers.
The farm employs 18 members of staff and 12 more in the harvest. Until recently, this was spread across 28 hectares of production, but this has now grown into 45 acres with coffee trees following a programme of new planting, with the remaining 15 hectares under their ownership remaining dedicated forest.
During harvest when the coffee is at its optimum ripeness, cherry is collected
manually by men and women, careful to collect only the ripe fruits. Then it is
transported to the benefi cio of one of the owners, to be pulped and washed. The
following day it is brought to a drying area for a controlled sun drying on African
beds, which takes about 12-15 days depending on the ambient temperature. When the coffee reaches 12% humidity, it is sent to the exporter to prepare for export.
