Honduras La Comunion is joining our offerings for another year. Its soft acidity and candy-like flavors offer a cup of Honduran coffee ready to be enjoyed again and again. The journey of this coffee shows the success that comes from working together.
Working with Benjamin Paz, we tasted and selected coffees from his community around Santa Barbara. Together, we selected four day lots from his neighbors — all producers Metric has worked with before — for their best qualities and combined the micro lots into a balanced community lot large enough to offer to you. Grown just miles apart, each farmer's contribution harmonizes with the next offering depth and interest.
Three washed lots and one honey lot combine to offer clarity and sweetness. The varietal characteristics of the Paraniema, Catuai, and Pacas express notes of ripe fuji apple, yellow starburst, and high quality milk chocolate. La Comunion offers us our favorite qualities of Honduran coffee and the sweet rewards of community working together.

Quality means buying high quality coffees from established producers around the world.
Traceability gives recognition to the producers and validates where the coffee is grown, picked, and processed.
We endeavor to contextualize the importance of a fair and balanced trade through the prices we pay.
As an Independent Specialty Coffee Roaster, we always pay well above the C-Market based on two factors; the quality of coffee and the cost of production.
A fair wage begins with paying higher premiums to the coffee producer in tandem with providing competitive wages and benefits for our staff here at Metric.
