About the bean
Green Beanery's relationship with Finca Lara has travelled the years. Our partner in beans, Ramon Lara, is the grandson of this family-run farm established in 1965. Ramon has helped to move his family's offerings to overseas markets and is responsible for introducing tens of thousands of pounds of Honduran coffee to Canada. Coffees from Finca Lara are always wonderfully consistent.
We're galloping through the start of the year powered by coffees that give us jam.
This Honduran from Finca Lara is most pleasant in the cup. There's nothing noisy about this morning friend. Aromatically sweet, creamy, with a chocolate middle that slides darker and earthy at a higher roast. Key here is the bean's nutty undertone that arrives fully towards the finish. Round body. Mild acidity. Cools tasty well (for those of us who sit on our cups throughout the day). A good pick for summer cold brews (take note).
