SEY | Honduras Piedras Amarillas, Washed Pacas
From our friends at Sey:
This is our second year buying this 100% Pacas micro lot from the Moreno brothers’ small farm Piedras Amarillas. This year the coffee has excellent sweetness and is slightly more delicate, pushing into a light, oxidized oolong tea with lemony acidity.
Harvested at peak ripeness. Floated. Depulped. Dry fermented for 24 hours. Washed. Dried on raised beds for 16 days.
ABOUT PIEDRAS AMARILLAS
Piedras Amarillas (yellow stones) gets its name from the abundance of yellow rocks scattered throughout this small 4-hectare (9.9 acre) plot. The farm is a communal project between three of the Moreno brothers: Mario, Danny, and Mabel, and consistently produces high quality Pacas, Bourbon, and Catuai coffees. The Morenos have been a cornerstone of coffee production in Santa Bárbara, dating back to their father, Daniel Moreno, who purchased his first farm in 1963.
