A bright complexity of Grapefruit is met with a syrupy sweetness of a nectarine that will leave you wanting more of this Honduran treat.

Located across the street from one of our farmlevel favorites, Denilson Madrid’s Las Flores lies the Finca La Huerta. Owned and operated by Jorge Lanza. While this is our first year offering Lanza’s coffee as a single origin, he has been a legend in the Honduran coffee community for 30+ years. On top of running multiple farms, Lanza is also a CPA and the current President of the Honduran Coffee Association. No big deal.
If you were to talk to him, you would see why he has such respect in his community. He sits you down, looks you in the eye and will tell you about the Legacy he wishes to leave for his grandchildren through the advocacy of sustainable practices and the role model he wants to be for his neighbors. He will share with you the hardship of being a farmer, but the beauty of working with your hands. We are honored to serve his coffee and share his passion with you.
We believe the coffee experience is our responsibility from seed to cup. Coffee is our craft, our ritual, our passion. It drives us and inspires us. With this simple truth and responsibility we are bridging the gap from farmlevel to streetlevel.
