Alberto came to coffee by way of his brother, a fellow coffee farmer who encouraged him to try the crop after cattle farming didn't work out. Alberto trained with the team at the Exportadora San Vicente project to grow his coffee for the specialty segment, and has found his footing in growing higher quality coffee, working with the Proyecto Cabañas mill to bring the best coffee to market he can. We've carried both his anaerobically fermented and his mechanically washed coffees before, and are impressed with his consistent and sweet flavor profiles.
Alberto Benitez, Honduras
Alberto Benitez' name is back on our menu this year with an anaerobic honey process coffee bringing a sweet and tangy brown sugar, pineapple, and dark chocolate cherry vibe. Cheers!
