Nelson Ramírez is a trained agronomist and meticulous farm manager, continually reinventing the way he cares for and processes his coffees in a fashion that leads to some of the most consistently outstanding flavor profiles we can find! Nelson Ramírez’s farm—nicknamed “Chely” after his mother—is located in the mountains above Lake Yojoa. These Catuaí variety coffees grow around 1550 meters above sea level, under heavy fog coming up from the lake below. These cooler temperatures, as well as other conditions unique to this micro-climate, contribute to slow the maturation process of the coffee, yielding a flavor that is unique in its complexity. Over the years, Nelson has reinvested into his farm’s milling infrastructure – in addition to building one of the best drying systems we’ve seen the world over, this year he surprised us with a new set of tanks that he uses to ferment and fully wash his coffees. Combined with this is a new water treatment system that reduces Nelson’s dependency on the scarce water resources needed for processing coffee.

Roast Level: Light Medium
A Light Medium Roast coffee, sometimes referred to as a "City Roast" or "American Roast," lies between a light and medium roast. This roast level strikes a balance by preserving the coffee bean's unique characteristics while allowing for a moderate development of body and flavor. The beans have a medium brown color, exhibiting a slight sheen of oils, providing a more balanced and nuanced flavor profile. A Light Medium Roast typically highlights the coffee's inherent fruity, floral, or citrus notes, while also providing some of the deeper, richer flavors associated with medium roasts.
Bean Source Country: Honduras
Honduran specialty coffee is distinguished by its diverse growing regions, such as Copán, Santa Bárbara, and Comayagua, each offering distinct flavor profiles due to the country's varied microclimates and elevations. Coffee from Honduras often features bright acidity, medium body, and a range of flavors, including fruity, nutty, and chocolatey notes.
