Background Details

Beneficio Santa Rosa is the powerhouse of western Honduras, boasting one of the most state-of-the-art dry mill operations in all of Central America. It starts with location. Santa Rosa de Copan has mild weather conditions, which makes for an ideal warehouse location for resting parchment and preparing coffee for export. Copan is the second largest growing region in Honduras, which means Beneficio Santa Rosa is well situated to receive coffee from many excellent sources. This lot comes from the collaboration of thirty-nine coffee producers who cultivated and harvested their coffee in the communities of Cruz Alta and Guanaspal within the Department of Lempira. Producers use their own micro-mill to process harvested cherries, which allows for meticulous care in sorting, depulping, fermenting, and drying the coffee.
