I like to alpine ski at Mammoth Mountain in California. Last year, a couple of weeks after a coffee buying trip to Honduras I was riding chair one, on a cold clear day. As I stood up on the unloading ramp my phone rang and I answered it. A voice said "This is Cristian Rodriquez, I want to come to Mammoth so you can taste my coffee". I said "Wow, you came all the way from Honduras! When are you coming to Mammoth?" He said "I am leaving now I will be there in 6 hours". So that is how we met and we became friends with him and his wife Anna. Anna says she wants to learn to ski!
Cristian went to school and became a dentist. When his brother Juan was in a car accident with an organized crime member, the man became angry, pulled a gun and killed Juan. Now, Cristian has inherited the family coffee farm and putting his heart and soul into coffee.
This offering is delicious. Hand sorted and processed with care, fruity, with a nice acidity and a good body that only a Central American can have.
