Notice on the first sip, mild yet juicy citrus of clementine. This is followed by tart rhubarb but that tartness transforms into fruit preserves in the finish.
Those who enjoyed a neighboring Parainema from Jorge Lanza will enjoy this coffee.

Fourth-generation coffee farmer Denilson Madrid is the son of our long-time Farmlevel partner Franklin Madrid (best known for Verve favorites, La Fortuna and La Patepluma). Rooted in coffee-growing culture and excellence, it’s no surprise that Denilson has big ambitions for his very own 5-hectare plot, La Peña. This plot is conveniently situated right beside two of our other all-time favorites, El Niño and La Colmena. Here, divided by an iconic pink-flower-lined pathway, Denilson tends to Catuai, Pacas, Bourbon, and Honduras’ newest variety, “Parainema.”
Parainema, as a variety, was bred and cultivated in Honduras. Like all coffee shrubs, it takes a few years before plants will begin to flower and produce fruit, and each year, they mature and, similar to wine, can develop even more sweetness and complexity over time. Purchasing this coffee has been a memorable experience as we have seen flavors develop over the years.
