JOE PAGAC COLLABORATION SERIES
Since 2011, Yellow Brick Coffee has celebrated coffee producing communities around the globe by sharing stories of its producers and uniquely roasting its coffees. By teaming up with Joe Pagac for this limited release, we are proud to honor our local community as well. Joe Pagac is a local painter and sculptor whose colorful murals liven up buildings and streets all over Tucson. We hope you enjoy this celebration of community and collaboration as much as we do.
THE ORIGIN STORY
Finca Rancho Escondido is owned and managed by Elvin Suazo. His 25 hectare farm in La Paz, Honduras, holds an impressive 90,000 coffee trees. Just as impressive is his processing infrastructure. After harvesting, his coffee is mechanically de-pulped, fermented for 30 hours, and dried for two weeks on nylon mesh raised beds.
La Paz, an area famous for coffee production in Honduras, is high in elevation with cool temperatures. These factors cause coffees to ripen slowly, developing sugars that are then processed in these comfortable climates. These coffees have high fruity sweetness with flavors of berries or peach. Cafe Import's greatest relationship in this area is a 270-producer cooperative, many of which are woman producers or Organic certified. Coffees from La Paz are extremely stable, and reliable as any offering type.
