New crop Saturnino Martinez's coffee from El Cedral village, which has produced many outstanding producers in the Santa Barbara area.
Mr. Saturnino is one of the producers with whom we have been doing business for several years.
At the beginning, we didn’t have a chance to try and introduce his coffee, as his production volume was quite limited among the samples which we got to try and purchase during our coffee-origin trip in the local area.
I have visited Mr. Saturnino several times in the past.
He hadn’t expressed much emotions and had always communicated at his own pace, so I used to see him as a producer, who had his own way of seeing the world and had enclosed himself in his world.
However, when I visited him this year, I was very surprised by the way he talked to me with more gentle manners than before, and he served me a cup of coffee with pepper in it.
As a new project, they started planting about 700 of Gesha seeds on 1 hectare of land.
It’s not big enough to make it work as a business, but I can see he is working on in at his own pace.
At his farm, which is within walking distance from his home, in addition to the Pacas variety, he also grows the newly planted Geisha variety and IH CAFE90 (IH90 is produced by IHCAFE, the National Coffee Research Institute of Honduras, as a measure against the rust disease that spreads to coffee trees.We also cultivate Bourbon, a hybrid variety developed in the 1980s (similar to Catimor)）, and the Bourbon variety.He has been creating compost and producing organic fertilizer for several years by mixing pulp, chicken manure, etc, and recently he is starting to use the organic fertilizer little by little instead of chemical one.
We remember his coffee by its delicate flavor. In the past, we purchased his coffee, whose process was anaerobic-fermentation, and we surprisingly found gentle and delicate flavor more than something exotic which we usually expect from anaerobic process.
Although this lot is limited in stock, we hope you enjoy this excellent coffee and find his delicate and gentle personality in the cup.
