Honduras Santa Elena Estate Medium Roast
Santa Elena Estate is located in the coffee region of El Paraiso in the south of Honduras, bordering Nicaragua. The fertility of the soil, rain patterns, and altitude range made this department a suitable land to grow coffee. The name of the farm comes in honour of the first owner ´s wife. In 2010 the owner of the farm Mario Segura bought the farm and started to produce coffee in his 360 hectares. Nowadays this farm generates jobs for more than eight hundred people.
With the amount of coffee that the farm was producing, don Mario had to build a new wet mill with a larger capacity in order to increase efficiency in the usage of water. State of the art wet mill has the options to process without fermentation or with fermentation.
Having a rich chocolate taste with caramel sweetness and hints of plum and ginger, this coffee is perfect to get you going in the mornings.

My second order from P&P and very impressed! Great friendly service and excellent coffee. Will now be my regular supplier of beans (and customer loyalty points are always a bonus - thanks!).
I settled on Santa Elena after trying 4 different coffees from Pebble and Pine.
It has the strength and depth of flavour I was looking for. (White Americano or flat white).
Because of the delays in delivery due to the Covid 19 crisis I ordered 3 Kgs to keep me in beans.
I like the resealable bags they come in, the value for money and the hand written note from Dave the owner.
I will be back for more when we have worked through the 3Kgs!
Thank you for delivering freshly roasted coffee beans and its taste is really really surreally nice! Now it wakes me up with the pleasant smell and great taste every morning! Many thanks for the perfect coffee!
We have been searching for some time for a coffee that tastes as good as it smells and at last we have found it. It is a bonus that it is delivered fresh to our door. Fantastic service and such a good way to get our daily coffee!
I am no taste expert, but the overriding flavor for me is smokiness. I like this taste. Freshly roasted beans equals a fresh tasting brew. I am going to continue trying all the coffee's until i find that perfect everyday cup of coffee. Great service. I now used Pebble and Pine rather than Pact.
