Background Details

HONDURAS FTO MARCALA EVARISTO GONZALES GRAINPRO is produced by Evaristo González and milled as a single farm micro-lot at RAOS (Cooperativa Regional de Agricultores Orgánicos de la Sierra) where Evaristo is a member. Evaristo and his family own a thirteen acre farm called Finca Bella Vista located in the municipality of San Jose within the department of La Paz, Honduras.  Evaristo has been cultivating and selling his coffee as a conventional commodity.  Over the years Evaristo and his family have made improvements to processing.  Ivan Vasquez, Q grader and quality manager at RAOS, recognized these improvements reflected in the cup quality and offered this special micro-lot directly to Royal Coffee.  Coffee is the main source of income for Evaristo and his family, and the premium for producing specialty coffee has helped them to continue to reinvest in their farm.
