Description

From now on Pearl Kite is absolutely dedicated to Honduras’ coffees. It is a mix of two very special cooperatives and two different processing methods:

50 % Honduras, cooperative Aprolma, washed arabica

50 % Honduras, cooperative Combrifol, natural arabica

 

Cup profile:

A strong body, creamy mouthfeel and aromas of cherry-cognac and lots of nougat.

 

Recommended for:

Pearl Kite is especially suitable for espresso machines, but also works with moka pots and fully automated machines.

 

Whole beans:

We sell our coffee unground as beans so that you can prepare the coffee as freshly as possible. By grinding yourself, you make sure that all the aromas end up in your cup. After just 30 minutes of exposure to air, ground coffee loses a large part of its aroma. More information is in our FAQ.

If you don’t have a grinder, we can grind the coffee for you. Just let us know in your order under “Order Notes”.

    Ein Espresso ganz nach meinem Geschmack. Samtig leicht mit milder Säure, hellen Früchten und Erdnussbutter. Der bleibt lange in Erinnerung 🙂

    Nach vielen Experimenten (Espressosorte, Mahlgrad und Anpressdruck) bin ich mit diesem Espresso glücklich:
    – er schmeckt lecker (kräftig und gut verträglich),
    – hat eine schöne Crema,
    – ist fair produziert und gehandelt.

    Leider ist er zu schnell alle.

    Super-aromatisch mit viel Aprikose und ein wenig Pistazie ist er seit einiger Zeit unser Favorit aus dem insgesamt tollen Flying-Roaster-Programm!

The green coffee for Pearl Kite comes from Aprolma and Combrifol cooperatives in Honduras.

Aprolma, Honduras

The green coffee for Steller’s Jay comes from Aprolma cooperative in Honduras.

The cooperative Aprolma (Asociacion de Productoras Libres de Marcala) was founded in 2013 and currently has 69 exclusively female members, mainly indigenous Lencas. Each member cultivates an average of 1.5 hectares in mixed cultivation. In addition to coffee, other products such as bananas, oranges and yucca are grown to feed the family. The aim of the cooperative is not only to produce the very best coffee, but also to empower women and to offer them financial success and stability. Three times a year, all women meet to discuss the current situation, elect board members or plan projects.

In a country where women's rights are constantly being disregarded and which has one of the highest rates of femicide in the world, a women's cooperative is particularly concerned with health and social issues. Like many other cooperatives around Marcala, Aprolma has a central processing plant where the harvested coffee cherries are delivered and then processed together. When the coffee cherries are delivered, the women receive a first partial payment. That's why our pre-financing is so important.

Altitude: 1,200 – 1,700 meters
