STRAWBERRY. FRANGELICO. AFFOGATO.
This coffee will have you waxing lyrical. The unique variety of arabica is a first for us at Unorthodox. Cultivated by Jorge after a heavy outbreak of leaf rust swept through Central America in 2013 as a way of ensuring he could grow and sell micro-lot coffee in challenging circumstances. There is a subtle Jannettas strawberry ice cream hit interlaced with Italian Frangelico hazelnut liqueur. The thickness at the end is sumptuous. The coffee has terrific body.

The Full Story
There are over 100,000 coffee farmers in Honduras and over 90% of them are smaller farms. They work together to contribute to a sum of roughly 6 million bags of coffee exported each year.
This particular lot of Obata, a leaf rust resistant variety developed in Brazil using a Timor hybrid and Villa Saarchi parentage is a clean and balanced coffee with a delicate but distinct acidity profile. Grown by Jorge Isaac Hernandez in the Copán region of Western Honduras - right on the border with Guatemala.
