SEY | Honduras El Mango, Washed Pacas
From our friends at Sey:
This is our first year working with this particular micro lot, and it was one of the top scoring lots we tasted this season. This selection is very complex, with sparkling black currant, a sugar pastry sweetness, and a delicate but long Earl Grey finish.
Hand picked at peak ripeness. Floated to further remove defects. Depulped. Dry fermented for 24 hours. Washed. Dried on raised beds for 16 days.
ABOUT PEDRO MORENO
We have been working with the Moreno family on the mountain of Santa Bárbara for quite a while now, and we have really come to love these coffees. As we continue to work within this special region, our exploration and understanding of the specific terroir and flavor profiles of these coffees continues to become more sophisticated. This particular selection from El Mango, a newer micro lot separation, is a beautiful example of one of our favorite profiles that we try to seek out year after year. We find it to be entirely unique to Santa Bárbara, and we hope that these coffees and profiles will continue to be around for years to come.
