Background Details

Honduras Santa Elena Catracha Mario Concepcion Martinez Romero GrainPro is sourced from a family-owned farm in collaboration with Catracha Coffee Company.  Mario produced this micro-lot on a 17 acre farm called Santiago Apóstol located in the municipality of Santa Elena within the department of La Paz, Honduras. Catracha Coffee works with a select group of farmers who participate in monthly educational seminars to improve upon their coffee production. These capacity building opportunities have helped Mario increase yields and improve the coffee quality. Mario receives all the profits associated with the sale of his exported coffee, which is the main source of income for him, his wife Miriam, and sons Mario Luis and Carlos Josué.
