About the Coffee
The Romero brothers, Walter and Sergio, are part of a third generation coffee producing family. Their father instilled in them the knowledge and passion to continue a tradition of high quality coffee production. La Lesquinada grows at an altitude of 1450 masl with a total planted area of 80 hectares (this is just one plot of the farm).
In addition to Lesquinada, the Romero family runs Cafico in Corquin, which aggregates coffee from area producers. Cafico seeks to stabilize prices for farmers, but is also an innovation lab where farmers can develop new coffee-processing methods and new products such as cascara tea. The Romero's also act as stewards of the community, supporting local schools by sponsoring libraries and computer labs.
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.
