Perched between the Sierra La Esperanza and Santa Bárbara mountains in Las Vegas, Honduras, lies Finca Ruland 2—a specialty coffee farm as beautiful as it is biodiverse, owned and operated by the Rubí-Landaverde family.

As a second generation coffee grower, daughter Andrea Rubí helped to usher in a new era for her family—launching them into specialty coffee as the culmination of two decades of farming heritage. Coming into the business with a fresh perspective, Andrea saw the value of moving their practice away from sole reliance on the commodity coffee industry, and—in addition to their newer frontier of experimentation—she now heads up their initiative to forge more direct relationships with coffee companies and roasters like Joe.

Andrea’s skill and diligence shines through this washed lot of Parainema, despite unpredictable growing conditions caused by a particularly difficult hurricane season. Expect a complex balance of layered acidity and structured sweetness—beginning with notes of deep citrus, stone fruit, and grape, flavors arc towards ripe cherry as the coffee cools, leaving us with a final, soft note of caramel.

Interested in more ways to explore? Dive into the nuance of process and terroir with our Atlas Collection Honduras Andrea Rubí—a naturally processed 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.

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.
