Honduras Gea Diosa De La Tierra Bloom

Medium Roast

floral, sweet, juicy

The Bean Shop is proud to introduce and support this all female coffee producer.  A Honduran coffee which has a delicate floral aroma, green grape sweetness, herbal notes, a smooth body and a light, juicy acidity.

In Greek mythology, Gea is the goddess of the Earth and the mother of all creation. This regional blend is created from the coffees of more than 400 women producers. Women producers absolutely seize the opportunities and challenges that coffee growing presents. Women also create opportunities and resources for one another, work during harvest, offer advice and bring notable attention to detail in their drying and milling.  They have also shown their ability to take a rough patch of land and turn it into a successful coffee farm, in part by planting timber and fruit alongside coffee crops, to increase shade and soil moisture and to encourage microclimates that bring complexity and quality to the cup.

This fully washed coffee was directly sourced from women producers in Lempira, Ocotepeque, Intibuca, Copan, La Paz, El Paraíso and Comayagua who were part of the RMC.

RMC was initially established in 2015 to support coffee families through the process of recovering from the rust epidemic. It pairs producers with agronomists who share best practices on plant nutrition, pest control, tissue management and the preparation of bio-fertilizers. Through NKG Bloom, those services have been expanded and paired with access to financing and traceability through mobile applications, among other benefits.

Honduras NKG Bloom Gea farms are at altitudes between 1,100 and 1,650 meters.  The producers use drying practices that include patios, solar dryers and raised beds.  This coffee is produced without the use of artificial pesticides or fertilisers.
