GEM 001 is equal parts of three African varieties grown at Finca el Puente in Marcala, Honduras. Each variety has interesting attributes, yet when blended together, GEM 001's components create an exquisite and complex cup. Lush aromatics of stone fruit waft from the cup, inviting you to taste. Take a sip and a burst of nectarine greets you, giving way to the complex, slightly savory flavor of tamarind. Juicy yet soft, this coffee fills your palate with the sweetness of raw cane sugar.

Finca el Puente

  • Finca El Puente is owned by third-generation coffee farmer Marysabel Caballero and her husband, Moisés Herrera. Raised in Guatemala and trained as an accountant, Moisés moved to Honduras in the 1990s to manage the operations of a coffee company. It was there that he met and married Marysabel, and together they established a coffee farm in Chenacla. 

  • Since the inception of their farm—Finca El Puente—the couple has dedicated themselves to producing the highest-quality coffee possible. On it, they grow rare coffee varieties under unique conditions, test experimental processing techniques, and generally push every aspect of coffee production to improve the coffee and the farm itself.
