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.

Excellent Beans - Fruity - Go Easy on the Roast

This is a great bean and lives up to the tasting notes and other reviews but you have to go easy on the roast and get a quick cool down or you can burn up the sugars and fruity flavors. My first roast attempts per my usual routine were very disappointing. After talking to Bhodi I got some pointers for this delicate bean and now I am dialing in the fruitiness I was expecting. I go easier on my temp ramp up and I pretty much stop the roast when first crack is about 90% complete. Usually I’d wait until the I heard the very last bean crack and then give another minute or more to even out my roast before initiating my cool down. That didn’t work with this bean and I’d lose all the fruity sweetness. Great bean though and as described. Hope this helps if you’ve gotten this bean and felt disappointed.

The fruit is heavy with this one! Delicious!

I am really impressed with this bean! At the first few sips I thought I was drinking a fruity Ethiopian bean but less acidic and a fuller body. As the cup cools the fruits mellow out, but it's still present. I'm not getting any chocolate out of this bean and I am not complaining.

NIce balance and aroma

I usually raost several different coffees and blend them to get what I like - didn't have to do that with this one.

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!
