We are excited to be offering another coffee from Finca La Joya! You may remember the exceptional washed catuai, now try the natural processed paraneima! Tony Castro operates Finca La Joya located just outside the town of Güinope in El Paraiso, Honduras. We first met Tony in 2020 while he was in the process of establishing direct trade relationships with roasters in the United States. We were immediately impressed with the quality of his beautiful coffees and his dedication to coffee farming. Tony utilizes specially built "solar dryers" that resemble large greenhouses with raised beds stacked inside to dry his coffees.
I’ve been buying coffee from Mudhouse for several years after a visit to Charlottesville. I’m a single origin snob and their selection is always perfect in taste and quality.
I sent four coffees as gift to a friend. She was happy, but she's too polite to let on if she weren't happy. I've never tased any of them. I'm trusting they were yummy.
