Our story and the untouch mountainous forest.

We have been producing coffee for over 40 years in harmony and respect for the environment in the department of Santa Bárbara, Honduras. Most of the property is untouched, beautiful virgin forest. The electrical grid does not reach our coffee farm so we have other sources of electricity(solar panels, small dynamo). We are now producing and processing specialty coffees. Our farm is so far away from the capital where we live because this property is what my father could afford to buy back in the day. He used to work two jobs during the weekdays in the capital and traveled during the weekends, 10 hours by bus and two hours by mule! Many times even hitchhiking a ride to get there or to return to the city! Now there is a dirt road and we arrive by 2x2 cars. He also managed to organise the construction of the dirt road in the 90s. He is an agent of change in the community, in 2006 he donated the materials for the construction of the school which bears his name in honor of his donation.
