A Limited Release From Maria Transito Argueta

Each year, the coffee producer cooperative COMSA in Marcala, Honduras meticulously organizes a premium lot program to showcase their individual farmers. These lots are limited, experimental and unique. Maria Transito Argueta’s lot from her farm, “La Encatada”, is our second release from this program for 2022. With tasting notes of brown sugar, caramel and honey, this fair trade and organic certified reserve series coffee from Honduras is a standout in our lineup.

Doña María Transito is a second-generation coffee farmer, as her mother was the first person in her family to grow coffee. María began her coffee project at the age of 28. She saved money from selling candies and food and purchased her small parcel in the community of Guascotoro, San José, close to Marcala.

Finca La Encantada is a coffee farm that began from nothing. Maria started her nursery and planted her own seedlings. This has allowed her to provide an education to her children and improve the overall conditions of her family's life. Finca La Encantada sits at 1520 meters, and is comprised of trees from the Catuaí, H27, and Gesha variety.

Bottom Line

Maria Transito’s offering from her farm La Encantata is a balanced, full bodied micro-lot which tastes of brown sugar, caramel and honey. This Amavida Coffee Roasters Reserve Series coffee hints at the flavors of fall just ahead of us.  We hope you’ll enjoy and share it!
