At just 21-years-old, Jorge Arturo Benitez Miranda may seem pretty young to be managing an award-winning coffee farm, but for him it comes naturally. Jorge has been working on his family coffee farm, Las Peñitas, in Honduras ever since he was a boy. In 2010, shortly after taking over the farm from his father, Jorge continued his father’s legacy by winning the Honduras Cup of Excellence competition. These beans, roasted by Ithaca’s Gimme! Coffee, yield a full-bodied yet smooth cup. This well-balanced coffee is defined by midnotes of pineapple and cane sugar, with a creamy base that carries into a clean, sweet finish.
