This years holiday blend is a combination of an offering from the Ethiopian village of Kore and an award winning coffee from Honduran producer Martin Lopez. Kore lies within the famed Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia. Martin Lopez placed 6th this year in the 9th annual Te Van a Conocer, Compa regional competition. Producers from around the Las Capucas cooperative are invited to submit their coffee each year. This year 75 producers did just that and we were honored to participate in this years judging.
