Rob says: For our third ‘Bomba de Fruta’ natural we are moving from Colombia to Honduras. Different origin, different taste. While the last ‘bomba’ from Huila was more ‘balsamic and funky’, this one is more structured and ‘espresso oriented’.

Drying Natural coffees is very difficult in Marcala because of the humid climate and the rain experienced during the drying period. Moises has worked hard over the years to perfect the process, and in doing so has also showed Fabio, his father-in-law, the same techniques. Where they are processing the coffees as Naturals, they are picking ripe cherry and drying on covered raised beds. Initially the layer of cherry must be thin and as the coffee dries you can increase the thickness of the drying cherry.
