Coffee Background

Want to support women in coffee?

María Maribel Martínez produced this micro-lot on a 45 acre farm called Aleley located in Santo Tomas a community within the municipality of Gualcince in the department of Lempira, Honduras. María is a primary school teacher. In 2016 she was able to purchase the farm with a bank loan. She named the farm Aleley, which is a combination of the names of her two daughters (Alexandra and Leydi).
Processing Detail
Maria uses her own micro-mill to process harvested cherries, which allows for meticulous care in depulping, fermenting for 12 hours, washing, and drying the coffee on patios.
The Exporter
Maria collaborates with an export company called BICAFE, which operates a warehouse and dry-mill in Santa Rosa de Copan. Weather conditions in Santa Rosa are ideal for storing parchment and the dry-mill is specifically designed for sorting micro-lots. The partnership has helped to improve quality, increase earnings from coffee sales, and strengthen the family’s livelihood.
