Honduras Rubí Sisters

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 and her sisters’ skill and diligence shines through this washed lot of Pacas, Expect a complex balance of layered acidity and structured sweetness—beginning with notes of deep citrus and stone fruit, flavors arc towards ripe cherry as the coffee cools, leaving us with a final, soft note of spice and caramel.
