We’re not saying that you should pour this year’s La Mina over pancakes... But we’re not saying that you shouldn’t. Downright jammy, La Mina returns once again with a boysenberry-like dark fruit profile.

As we strolled through finca La Mina’s steep slopes of Bourbon and Pacas trees, it wasn’t long before we crossed over into another Farmlevel rock-star, Danilo Pineda’s farm. Neighbors and allies in coffee farming, Danilo’s two sons can also be found helping Rodrigo (“Rigo”) Erazo harvest and deliver his produce to Beneficio San Vicente.
Situated 1,800 MASL on the slopes of the Santa Barbara mountain in Central Honduras, Erazo's finca La Mina boasts some of the most optimal conditions for growing coffee. Though only four-years new to speciality coffee production; Finca La Mina is 29-years in the making.
Four years ago, motivated to capitalize on his optimal farming conditions, Erazo began separating his lots by quality leading Verve to fall in love with La Mina. Four years later, we're immensely proud to carry his coffee once more.
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. We are verve. Made in santa cruz.
