It's time for your The Filter Blend update. Featuring La Cidra from Lempira, Honduras, we're bringing a first-time showcase, Huabal from Cajamarca, Peru, into The Filter Blend mix. Comfort in a cup, this iteration offers breakfast pastry sweetness accentuated by juicy fruit notes.
Huabal is a community lot named after a district within the Jaén province of Cajamarca. Because of poor infrastructure, Huabal was cut off from the resources and practices it takes to produce high-quality coffee. However, this has changed in recent years, and the area has become a focal point for our partners, Falcon Coffee. With the premiums now being offered for speciality coffee, producers are replanting more suitable, higher-quality varieties like Caturra, Bourbon, and Catuai, and with good management and fertilization, these varieties are thriving both in the field and the cup.
Showcasing the versatility of this year's Honduras season, La Cidra is produced by Renato Sánchez, who partners with Beneficio San Vicente (BSV) for dry milling and marketing, led by Benjamin Paz. Due to BSV's outstanding range of profiles, coffees from the mill's partners within the Santa Barbara region frequently dominate quality competitions. Their foray into the Lempira region is an exciting new chapter for the well-known mill, exemplified by their work with Renato.
