La Montanita is located in a unique micro climate on the Santa Barbara mountain in Honduras. Heavy cloud cover and lower temperatures at the farm extend the maturation time of the pacas coffee cherries, producing light and bright flavours such as grapefruit and and blood orange. This coffee scored #2 at the 2018 instalment of the Project Origin ‘Best of Honduras: Late Harvest’ auction.
This coffee was used by Matthew Lewin to place first at the 2019 Australian Barista Championship. As an espresso, it has notes of blood orange, raspberry, plum and ruby grapefruit.
Coffee beans are judged on a 100-point scoring system that assesses body, balance, uniformity, sweetness, clarity and acidity. Coffee scoring 80+ points is considered specialty coffee.
