El Filo, meaning "the ridge", is the name of several farms sitting adjacent to each other on the very edge of this hillside in Santa Barbara, This has become the most sough after area for speciality coffee in Honduras over the last 10 years. The pioneers and role models of the community are all from the Moreno family, where Mario is a one out of eight (independently) coffee farming brothers. Mario is meticulously selecting only the most mature cherries when harvesting. The wet and drying processes are executed with the same mindset and care. It is hard to imagine a coffee more "handcrafted" than this, and is what makes it such a great example of the Santa Barbara success story.

Tasting notes: This juicy, clean, and sweet coffee represents everything great about Honduras coffees. Starting with aromatics of malt baked fruit, this medium bodied cup is loaded with both tropical and citrus fruits while still having a caramel core.
