One of the most interesting aspects of sourcing coffee is discovering new and un-tasted regions throughout the world. Our new 04 hails from a place that hasn’t always been known for producing specialty grade coffee. The family-run farm, La Loma, is nestled in the shadow of the volcano El Matazano, near San Andres, Honduras. Farmer Jose Rogelio Diaz and his wife Maria Gladys Lopez acquired the land as a wedding present and have worked hard over the past decade to produce an incredible crop that we are happy to share. 

Despite Honduras being the largest exporter of coffee in all of Central America, and the sixth
largest exporter of coffee in the world, only 7% of the available landscape has producing coffee trees. The potential for high quality coffee in this country is staggering. 

Honduran specialty coffee production has grown as a direct result of milling organizations called “Beneficios”. La Loma was sourced through our relationship with one of these Beneficios called BECAMO, a highly dynamic milling/exporting company based in San Pedro Sula with locations throughout the Honduran countryside. 

BECAMO has a presence wherever coffee grows in Honduras and has shown a deep commitment to improving coffee quality year over year. Their organization provides pristine milling facilities, regular training modules, and hands-on training for farmers seeking to improve quality. Jose and Maria’s coffee is a direct product of these programs.

For the past two years, Jose has dedicated himself to learning as much as he can about coffee agronomy and processing through classes and modules offered by BECAMO. Their knowledge and commitment, paired with Jose and Maria’s hard work, has created a wonderful coffee that is a shimmering example of the quality possible in Honduras. We are excited to continue to find and share more coffees like this in the future.
