Similar to the sweetness of apricot but this first sip starts with a tang that mirrors Kumquat. It has a licorice-like body that is both black tea and herbs. Its lingering finish rounds out the entire experience hot to cold.

Located across the street from one of our Farmlevel favorites Denilson Madrid’s Las Flores, lies the farm La Huerta. Owned and operated by Jorge Lanza. While this is our third 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.
If you were to talk to him, you would see why he has such respect in his community. He sits you down and is excited to tell you about the Legacy he wishes to leave for his grandchildren by advocating sustainable practices and the role model he wants to be for his neighbors. He approaches every decision he makes about coffee growing through the lens of what is best for his coffee and what will set the best example for all other coffee growers here in Honduras. 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.

This is a four star strong coffee. I am a new customer and not familiar with your coffee ratings. I prefer a slightly stronger roast and will probably order at least a five star next round.
The Jorge Lanza is a somewhat mild coffee that lives up to its description of kumquat as it has an obvious sweet citrusy note up front balanced by the anise after the sip- but not acidic as one might assume with citrus. It is a floral note and I liked that about this coffee. I prefer a more robust coffee but not acidic. I would recommended this coffee to those who like a light, citrus coffee. I hate to even use the word citrus, because it is more like a blossom. Mild.
