Since 2005, the region, Santa Barbara, and the small producers living and working there, have shared the distinction as the place and the people producing exceptional coffee within Honduras.There exists an eagerness here; a willingness, motivation and ambition to produce the best coffee in the country. To produce coffee that tastes fruity is not very complicated. But to produce coffee that is clean, clear, fresh and fruity – that’s an art. One of the biggest assumptions within specialty coffee is that coffee from high-altitude areas naturally exhibits these characteristics. But high elevation can lead to potential problems, even in tropical climates.
Jose Maria, a retired doctor, is the first in his family to work in coffee, and his wife is a second generation coffee grower. He purchased an existing coffee farm in 1990, and planted additional Catuai and Bourbon trees.Three years ago he planted a lot with Pacas trees. We’re excited to partner up with him to release this beautiful coffee.
