Quality Report - Honduras Arianita Pacas Washed

About This Coffee

Producer Kelvin grows pacas, bourbon and IH-90 at Arianita. Prior to managing this farm, he worked in coffee for the family business until a tragic accident took his father’s life in 2010. Kelvin took on responsibility for the welfare of his mother and brothers by changing their land from coffee production to cultivating vegetables. It wasn’t until 2017 that Kelvin made a return to coffee production. He bought a block of coffee producing land from his father-in-law and began to focus on improving the quality of his harvests to make specialty grade coffee. Based on the results of the 2019 Auction, we think it’s clear that he and his family have done an incredible job.
