Description: Isaura Martínez has dedicated her life to the cultivation of coffee. Learning from her father, Antonio Martínez, the good practices of processing, drying and storage of coffee. Her father is a legend in Opatoro, La Paz, and a visionary farmer.

With the arrival of Roya in Honduras in 2012, Isaura Martínez lost more than 60% of her production which added to the crisis of bad prices offered by the intermediaries. In 2014, with the help and friendship of siblings Karen and Edgar Carrillo, work began on the separation of coffee according to quality improvements were made to coffee collection and the milling process.

The 2015-2016 harvest had substantially improved cup quality in the washed process. Further improvement was made during 2016-2017 harvest and the coffee was processed using the natural method for the first time with good results. Bodhi Leaf is proud to have supported Isaura Martinez by purchasing this great coffee from Finca San Jacinto for over 4 years! 

The farm’s name of “San Jacinto” was chosen due to the Hyacinth flower that is naturally found on the land.

Incredible coffee with huge flavor

I absolutely love this coffee! I have a soft spot to fruity coffees, and this coffee is no exception! This coffee is an absolute berry bomb. If you like fruity coffees that explode with flavor, you will love this one. I roast this coffee to a City roast level. It explodes with flavor in the cup, and the aromas are heavenly. I can't recommend this coffee enough!

Coffee Burner

This is a rather strong little bean here. In my experience, this is one of those 1st crack 2nd crack blenders, you really have to pay attention to the sight (namely, the texture of the bean) and smell (how roasty), and not rely on the sound as much. If you manage to get it before 2nd crack is underway, this is quite a berry-chocolate heavy brew. The green coffee itself looks a bit splotchy, but don't let that put you off.
Overall, rather tight navigation is required for roasting, but brewing has a large margin of error, it didn't take long to find a "sweet spot" in terms of grind size/brew time.

Delicious Coffee

The Honduran beans are winning me over. I really like the Honduras Organic Copan beans as well. Truthfully, I can't decide which one I like more!
There is a really nice balance between the fruit/blueberry note and the cocoa richness that follows. Wow, super delicious! (I would echo all the previous reviews)

A little more info:
The unroasted green coffee has a unique "speckled" look - I think it is because of the natural drying process. I roasted it to a medium level, not quite into the 2nd crack, and the beans came out looking great! The aroma of the freshly ground coffee is captivating. Then the mild sweetness/acidity/cocoa flavors of the brewed coffee make you wish you never had to stop drinking it :)

We get our beans from the farms and roast coffee daily. We truly are farm to cup.
