Francisco's farm, El Durazno, is at 1700 masl. It is truly a family effort to harvest, process, and produce the great coffee we have seen from Francisco. Francisco, his wife and their two children are all involved! He has owned the farm for 13 years and has worked to make improvements by planting exceptional varieties and taking care in the pulping and drying of his coffee.
The coffees from Honduras can be so amazing when they are from the right places and are processed well. They often have more complexity, depth, and richness than other Central American coffees. This group of producers is making an enormous effort, and reinvesting in their infrastructure on their wet mills, drying facilities, and back into their production. This is an exciting development, as it allows for greater traceability and separation of high-quality micro-lots, and is by no means ordinary for Honduran coffee producers.
