Manuel Adan
dried strawberry, juicy passionfruit, vanilla

Manuel Adan is loaded with tropical fruits; when we first put this coffee on the cupping table, all the samples were near empty within ten minutes. That's a pretty good indication for us that it's a crowd favorite for us.

We sourced this coffee via Virmax/Caravela, a unique vertically integrated importer/exporter from whom we've worked with for years with on Colombian coffees. This year we were interested in branching out into Honduras, and agreed to buy two different lots from them to test the waters; this is the first of those to be released.

Both coffees we bought from Honduras (Manuel Adan & Guamilito) are dry milled at Beneficio Santa Rosa. Virmax has been working with them since 2011. They're decked out with density sorters, electronic eyes, and all the tools that are a hallmark of a top milling operation. You can see pictures of their operation at Virmax's flickr.
