This coffee is IH-90 varietal, also known as Catimor developed by the Honduran Coffee Institute for high yield and to grow well at low altitudes. Its parent varietals are Caturra and Sarchimor. In past years people have been sceptical of its cup potential but we keep tasting better and better Catimors, especially in the last two harvests from Honduras. This one stands out as it is beautiful, sweet and has lots of depth of flavour and clarity and is washed whereas lots of the best Catimors recently in our experience have been naturals.

This coffee was a collaboration between Roman Flores and his 13 year old son Amilcar Roney Flores. Roman Flores is passing on lots of information of farming and processing and it is really nice to be able to showcase this coffee that's the result: the first lot with Amilcar’s name to it!
