Our Head of coffee
“One of my first memories of the flavour of nectarine and peach is of the canned variety, swimming in their syrupy source with a splash of single cream.This coffee has characteristics that remind me of all these things. It’s superb sweetness slightly overshadows the delicate citrus acidity, the body is round like single cream and together with the delicious light nectarine and peach flavours make this a delight!”
Jose is a humble and quiet man. He hails from Cangual, Intibuca in Honduras and he takes the business of growing coffee very seriously. Jose’s beautiful farm boasts some of the finest weather a coffee-grower could hope for, and thanks to years of hard work and saving, he was recently able to build his own mill on the farm. This enables him to oversee the processing of his coffee every step of the way; needless to tay he takes enormous pride in the coffee they produce there. “Coffee means everything to me,” Jose explains “I am working to improve the quality of life for my family. I love coffee production because it is an activity that allows all members of my family to participate.”
Jose and his family employ two workers year-round, who help them to plant trees, maintain the farm and - bit by bit - make gradual improvements to their processing mill. They then hire 15 extra pickers during harvest time. The coffee cherries are harvested as soon as they’re fully ripe and depulped the same day. Depending on the weather, fermentation then last between 20 and 30 hours, before solar driers and newly-installed screens are used to dry the coffee to 11% humidity, which takes 20 to 30 days.
It is my passion, my way of life for me and my family.
Good prices and contact with the international market. We also get a visit from them every year, which I really like.
I would like to improve my house next year, it is very basic at the moment. I also want to buy a vehicle to speed up the transporting of the coffee and to help my workers with their education. Where is your favorite spot to relax on the farm? I love to climb the avocado trees on the farm. I climb to the top of the trees at the highest point on the farm, where I can view the mountains.
