Mata de Platano translates directly to plantain tree, a frequent feature in the region of El Paraiso, which has produced high-quality coffees for years but is new to the Genuine Origin family. Years ago the region was hard hit by leaf rust, and while the farms were devastated, the producers remained incredibly optimistic and determined. Our contacts in Honduras describes them as "shining as brightly as their coffees" and absolutely determined to make El Paraiso a must-have for specialty coffee enthusiasts. The coffees of El Paraiso feature beautiful floral notes and delicate acidities, as well as a touch of dark chocolate.
