First Friday November

Join us for a taste of South Bend... Zen Cafe Coffee style.

Shaun from Zen Cafe will serve Rudy Carcamo's direct trade Honduras coffee 3 ways.
The way coffee is dried, washed, and roasted all affect flavor and profile. This is your chance to taste the difference.

Zen Cafe will serve washed, honey, and his signature Tres blend this evening, all from one farm in Honduras.

A note from Rudy about the coffee tasting event. These are the type of relationships we love to help foster. Kudos to Zen Cafe for their work to make their coffee as transparent as possible.

"Telling the story of my relationship with Zen Cafe is trying to enshrine in time a moment where three years ago the dream of every coffee producer came true: my coffee, my country, Honduras could be recognized and savored in other countries.

Zen Cafe gave me an opportunity that goes beyond just selling Coffee. Our relationship, grown around a desire to produce aromatic coffee has become an important part of my life and my Family. Zen Cafe is part of the production chain of coffee. They help bring it to you. With their visits to the Finca El Joconal located in La Union, Lempira, Honduras they have been involved in the whole process of coffee production. This day you are acquiring that experience.

That's why I thank you for purchasing for quality with my coffee. It has been produced on a family farm, the product of long effort. A process that ensures the sustainable use of natural resources and biodiversity and land conservation. This is how I obtain the quality required by my buyers.

That's why I invite you to answer the following question:
Why do you like my coffee?

Thank you!
Rudy Carcamo
