Background Details

Honduras Humberto Ardon SHG EP Grainpro is sourced from Humberto Ardon and his two-member family. Humberto produced this coffee on his 29-acre farm located in the municipality of San Andres within the department of Lempira, Honduras. Humberto has been farming for 12 years and uses his own mill to processes harvested cherries, which allows for meticulous care in depulping, fermenting, and drying the coffee. Humberto 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 high quality micro-lots. The partnership has helped to improve quality, increase earnings from coffee sales, and strengthen the family’s livelihood.
