Honduras Cabañas

Located in the village of Pena Blanca is the coffee exporter San Vicente – the company that coordinates the coffee our importer buys from Santa Barbara which then ends up in this bag. The coffees from this area are sweet, clean and rich in desirable attributes. Over the past several years, one particular hillside has become the largest supplier of Cup of Excellence winners in Honduras. The most successful farms with the smartest and most innovative farmers are neighbors on this hillside and they all help each other to refine the best of their lots.

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. In the highest areas of Santa Barbara, up to and over 1800 meters, producers can experience “freezing”: the combination of temperatures between 4-5C and rainfall that combine to cause cherries to not ripen and leaves to die on the bush. These conditions create a cold and humid climate, which is hazardous for processing and requires steady and reliable drying conditions for coffee so quality will not deteriorate. These natural conditions, of course, cannot be evaded. But clever and prescient coffee farmers, like the ones we collaborate with here, invest in drying systems that minimize the risks associated with weather.
