The Atlas Collection is a line of limited-release coffees intended to highlight our sourcing values—quality, ethics, collaboration, and integrity—our tools for exploring the complex world of coffee. This naturally processed Parainema produced by Andrea Rubí in Honduras embodies the value of ethics.

Nestled between the Sierra La Esperanza and Santa Bárbara mountains in Las Vegas, Honduras is Finca Ruland 2, a specialty coffee farm owned and operated by the Rubí-Landaverde family. As second-generation coffee growers, Andrea Rubí and her sisters, Brenda and Angie, see specialty coffee as an opportunity to share their family’s story directly with those who reciprocate their values, while also getting fairer prices for their business and the local community they employ.

Andrea manages all of the family’s coffee processing, and even through a tumultuous year involving a particularly bad hurricane season, has persevered to produce her first-ever naturally processed coffee, of which we are lucky enough to be the recipients. This lot of Parainema shines with the deep fruit flavors of a natural coffee—rich, dark cherry gives way to roasted citrus, ending on a particularly pleasant, textured note of sweet maple syrup.

Interested in more ways to explore? Dive into the nuance of process and terroir with our Honduras Andrea Rubí single origin—a washed coffee that comes from the same small lot of Parainema, but offers a completely complementary take on process. It’s rare that we’re able to offer two coffees like this at the same time, so don’t miss out on the chance to taste, side-by-side, the true value that process adds to each.

Atlas Collection offerings are 8oz.

The Story

After nearly two decades of conventional coffee farming at Fincas Ruland 1, parents Alfredo Rubí and Suyapa Landaverde decided to purchase a new plot of land in 2015, with dreams of cultivating specialty coffee varieties. Putting those intentions into action, Finca Ruland 2 launched their family into a new era of strategy and focus for the business.

Andrea Rubí returned to her “coffee paradise” hometown around the same time that the Rubí-Landaverdes were beginning work on Finca Ruland 2. Working beside her two sisters, Brenda and Angie, Andrea took the lead on building out the family’s specialty coffee farm, which now grows eight varieties including this plot of Parainema.
