Background Details

HONDURAS FTO PEDRO MELGAR CALIX YELLOW HONEY GRAINPRO is produced by Pedro Melgar and milled as a micro-lot at RAOS (Cooperativa Regional de Agricultores Orgánicos de la Sierra) where Pedro is a member. Pedro and his wife own a seven acre farm located in Santa Ana, a municipality within the department of La Paz, Honduras. Pedro and his family have been cultivating coffee since 1985 and selling their coffee as a conventional commodity. Over the years they have made improvements to processing. Coffee is the main source of income for Pedro and his family, and the premium for producing specialty coffee is going to help them to raise their seven children.
