Product Details

12 oz bag
We are very excited about the return of Sebastián Benitez’s La Piñona. Above the town of El Cielito, overlooking Lake Yojoa, Sebastián grows these Pacas cherries on his farm at 1615 meters above sea level. The cooler temperatures from the lake shrouds the farm in fog, which helps to slow down the maturation of the cherries. Working the farm with the help of his wife and their 11 children, Sebastián relies on the help of only a handful of employees during the harvest, and manages to do all of the coffee farming himself. He also processes his own coffee in a small mill, pulping the coffee by hand, fermenting in tanks, and then drying on raised beds under a parabolic cover. As an espresso, Sebastián’s coffee is sweet and complex with flavors of amaro, chocolate, grapefruit preserves, and a caramel-like finish.

About The Producer

Ritual Coffee Roasters
San Francisco
Ritual has been a pioneer in this delicious shift in coffee consciousness since we opened our doors on Valencia Street in 2005 and started what some call a coffee revolution in San Francisco. Our goal then--and our goal now--was to craft the very best cup of coffee available anywhere. Period. We've learned a lot over the years, but the care and attention we lavish on our process is unchanged, including tasting every coffee several times before it goes out to our coffee bars and into your cup.Read more
