Background Details

Honduras Copan Esteban Lopez SHG EP is a micro-lot produced by  Esteban López  on a 170-acre farm located in the community off El Trigo within the municipality of La Unión in the department of Copán, Honduras. Esteban uses his own micro-mill to processes harvested cherries, which allows for meticulous care in depulping, fermenting, and drying the coffee. Esteban 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.
