Sweet and tropical notes of fresh Kiwi are followed by an almost tooth aching sweetness of spun sugar. It's held together in a juicy and bouncy mouthfeel.

La Colmena - Spanish for “beehive” - sits perched at one of the highest points in one of our favorite municipalities within the Santa Barbara region, Las Flores. Arturo Paz gave his farm this name upon noticing a reoccurring honey-like sweetness in the coffees — We couldn’t agree more.
Paz represents a generation of young coffee producers in the Santa Barbara region committed to producing world-class organic specialty coffee. Having placed in the Cup of Excellence year-after-year, Paz' La Colmena is one of the top-producing farms in the country, and his coffee, a personal favorite of ours at Verve.
Not only is Arturo an exemplary producer, but a formidable cupper as well. In addition to overseeing his well-manicured lots of Yellow Catuai, Pacas, Bourbon, and now Gesha, he’s responsible for quality control at his uncle's Beneficio San Vicente where he - and hundreds of other local farmers - deliver and dry-mill their coffee for export.

For the past three years, I've been drinking Verve single origin coffees daily and have had a lot of great cups of coffee. (I brew pour overs, medium grind, 202 degree water.) This batch of La Colmena was astonishing: the depth and complexity was on another level; one of the greatest coffees I've had in my life.
amazing for cold brew. one of the best. hot is ok but nothing special. cold is definitely something to try.
Honduran coffee is my regional favorite and this is an excellent example.
