ALEX AND HIS PARAINEMA...
The goal for many small coffee farmers we work with is to find a coffee variety to plant that will be both disease resistant and still have amazing taste. Alex Baide and several other farmers in Honduras are finding that “Parainema” is the way to go. Parainema is a combination of an old variety called Villas Sarchi and a disease resistant variety called Catimor. This combination is sometimes referred to as a “Sarchimor”, (useful knowledge for your next dinner party! Ha). This is our second year buying from Alex, and his Parainema was again one the best. We are thankful for his continued diligence.
Having just acquired a farm 3 years ago Alex decided to plant it entirely in Parainema and the results have been stunning. There are intense fruit notes like punch and such nice juiciness throughout. Alex and his wife are of a younger generation of coffee farmers in Santa Barbara, Honduras that are innovative and quality focused. We are excited to continue to partner with them and look forward to the future.
