The altitude, pristine shadow pine trees

El Buen Pastor is the name of the association between several coffee farm producers located in the Potrerillos community, in Comayagua district, at an average altitude of 1600 meters. One of the farm's member won the Honduran cupping excellence rate in 1997. Unfortunately, due to last years low coffee price, many producers abandoned plantations creating local negative socio economic impact. Recently, production was reorganized under an association where sustainable production, conservation and social commitments are integrated. The strength of each member is used and promoted toward the well being of the group. The producers currently cultivate eight varieties of coffee with the distinct traceability of the micro-lots. The Buen Pastor coffee is “Strictly High Grown”. The altitude allow the coffee to grow slower, increasing the mineral and nutrient uptakes and developing a fuller, more robust flavor of coffee. This is the highest quality coffee designation in Honduras. The colder nights bring out the coffee’s sweeter peach, apricot, caramel, and citrus notes. To round out the unique flavor profile, characterized by the pristine pine trees providing mild shadow, it has a velvety body with a bright acidity. Seeking the best ecological adaptation of each variety, the coffee grows in the buffer of the Montecillos Protected Area. Each grain is harvested by hand, then washed and dried carefully to provide an excellent coffee with unparalleled distinction.
