The Honduran Finca Las Canas has finally arrived after many delays.
We brought up the entire crop of 88 bags form this fresh new plantation.
What an odd thing to say isn’t it? It is a fresh new plantation because it was young when Hurricane Mitch destroyed everything, immediately afterwards many new plants were planted. This year is the first full mature year this small estate yields a fully developed balanced fruit. I had the chance to visit in March of this year and wrote about it in roast.
