About the Coffee
We are proud to introduce La Hondureña, our first women-farmer coffee from Honduras. This lot was produced in cooperation with the International Women's Coffee Alliance (IWCA) and Molinos de Honduras, our sister company in Honduras.
La Hondureña was carefully selected from small holders of the Asociacion De Mujeres Procesadoras De Cafe La Labor (AMPROCAL) and independent producers: Socorro Reyes, owner of Finca Pashapa El Meson and Norma Lara, owner Finca Gaby.
Honduras is a small Central American country with its share of problems. The World Bank estimates that in rural areas 20% of Hondurans earn less than $1.90 per day. Country-wide, roads are sub-optimal; many coffee farms in Honduras are accessible only via dirt roads that snake up along mountainsides. Despite these factors, entrepreneurial producers are working toward higher quality, experimenting with new processing techniques and growing high-profile varietals. The objective: kick down the door of the specialty coffee market, build a reputation as a specialty coffee origin and earn the money that comes with it.
