Honduras - Betty Perez - Finca Clave Del Sol - Natural
Variety: Catuai, Icatu
Altitude: 1400 MASL
Clave de Sol, or treble clef, is the 6-hectare farm of Miriam Elizabeth Perez, affectionately known as "Betty" to her friends and family. The name of the farm comes from the deep passion Betty has for music, especially when it comes to her violin. She has produced coffee for 19 years and is a third generation farmer. In the past, when the farm was called Finca el Rincon, her family had lost almost the entire crop to leaf rust. The last 5 years have been a proving ground of rebuilding and improving the cup to become what it is today. The experience and passion is clearly present in everything she does with her coffee, and it shines through in the cup. Natural-process, in this case, has produced a sweet and clean cup with delicate fruit tones. "Clave de Sol is the harmony of nature expressed in a cup of coffee; enjoy."
