Background Details

Honduras Intibuca Cristina Lara SHG EP is sourced from Cristina Lara and her five-member family. Cristina produced this coffee on his 12-acre farm located in El Pelón a community within the municipality of San Juan in the department of Intibucá, Honduras. Cristina has been farming for 18 years and uses her own mill to processes harvested cherries, which allows for meticulous care in depulping, fermenting, and drying the coffee. Cristina 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.
