Los Lirios, Honduras

Los Lirios means “The Lilies” and is home to Jose Luis Rivera and his family in western Honduras. The Riveras are members of the Capucas cooperative, and for years have sold their coffee through the co-op. Recently they established a small mill on the farm, and started processing their own coffee: they pick only the ripe Caturra trees, depulp, and ferment without water for about 15 hours before washing, and then dry it on raised beds in a secadora. In 2011, Jose Luis entered the coffee they processed into the co-op’s annual competition to recognize quality producers, and won second place. Irving Farm’s Coffee Buyer, Dan Streetman, was one of the judges at this competition, and purchased the coffee. After trying the coffee back at our roastery, its beautiful flavors of mango, cashew and honey were such a hit it was evident Los Lirios was going to be something special. Dan decided to form a long term relationship with Jose Luis, and this coffee has become an Irving Farm favorite year after year.


This coffee is certified USDA Organic, meaning its production did not involve the use of synthetic substances such as most pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers.img-0926.jpgimg-0901.jpgimg-0917.jpgimg-0915.jpgimg-0902.jpg

    Wonderful complement to Farm Brew

    Written By Sandy
    13th Apr 2013

    Our morning coffee consists of 2/3 Decaf Farm Brew and 1/3 caffeinated coffee. I tried other caffeinated coffees from Irving Farm and found that the best combination is the Los Lirios with the Farm Brew. It blends beautifully, making a rich, moderately strong coffee. It is the perfect complement to the Farm Brew.



Micro-lots:

Available for limited times in small quantities, our carefully curated micro-lots are single origin coffees at their purest. Not only are the beans sourced from one farm, they're sourced from one micro-lot of land on that farm, ensuring a highly consistent flavor and experience. This is a wonderful way to sample the true, amazing potential of coffee. We've selected these lots despite their small quantity because we see something in them that's truly special--and we think you will, too.

Single Origins:

True to their name, single origin coffees consist of beans sourced from a farm or community in one, specific region. Seasonal selections from around the world, our line of single origin coffees focuses on the highest quality product from coffee producers who take their work as seriously as we do.

Blends:

Handcrafted from exceptional single origin coffees, our signature blends are carefully developed in our Hudson Valley roastery to please drinkers day after day, year round.

Decaf:

Offering exceptional flavor to coffee lovers who prefer to go without the caffeine, our Decaf selections stay true to taste with carefully blended, naturally water-processed decaffeinated coffees.
