Evin Moreno, HondurasRegular price £12.40
This coffee originates from Evin Joel Moreno's farm which is part of a pristine forest designated as a national park. Evin initially dedicated himself to vegetable farming, but by 2010, declining profits amid rising costs prompted him to consider a shift in his agricultural pursuits. Seeking guidance from his father, an adept coffee producer in the area, Evin made the transition to coffee cultivation. As financial strains loomed, Evin's wife moved to Europe for work, a shift that ultimately uplifted their financial situation.
Evin's debut in the Cup Of Excellence competition in 2013 landed him a notable 12th place. Bolstered by this triumph, he carefully prepared his first specialty micro-lot and with improved prospects soon enough his wife made her way back to the farm. Today, their unyielding pursuit of excellence in farming and processing, commitment to enhancing their coffee's quality mirrors their ambitious vision for the future.
Expect tasting notes of stewed pineapple, hibiscus tea, red apple.
