Background Details

Ben Paz is the third generation to work at the family owned exporting company called Beneficio San Vicente where he has become well-known for his matchmaking skills, forming relationships between some of the finest coffee producers in Honduras with roasters from around the globe. Much of his focus for nearly two decades has been in proximity to the Santa Barbara mountains, which led him to Pablo Alexander Cruz, a producer in the Las Vegas micro-region repeatedly recognized in the Honduras Cup of Excellence. Pablo has a 7.5 acre farm called La Cruz where half an acre is dedicated to forest conservation and 7 acres is dedicated to coffee cultivation and intercropped with aguacate, bananas, lemons, pineapple and yuca.
