This is a washed SHG microlot from producer Rosendo Reyes and his farm La Cofradía in the San Juan region of western Honduras.


THE PRODUCER


Before getting involved in coffee, Rosendo used to work as a builder in his community. To start with this provided a secure income for him and his family but after more competition moved into the area Rosendo decided to focus on agriculture and started planting corn for their own consumption. Half of the lands he owns today were inherited by his father and the other half he bought with his own savings.


In 2012, Rosendo decided to plant coffee in the same land where he planted corn, starting with 0.35 ha, which he expanded over time, little by little. Today, besides coffee, he still plants a small quantity of corn and beans to ensure a supply of food for his family even in rough times.


Rosendo is working towards achieving RFA, Utz and Organic certification this year. He is still early on his specialty coffee journey but with business growing each year,coffee is providing much needed financial security for his family.


THE PROCESS


Harvesting is carried out selectively and by hand. Ripe cherries are mechanically pulped and fermented in concrete tanks for 12-16 hours depending on ambient conditions. After thorough washing, the parchment coffee is sun-dried on raised beds for around 6 days (until the optimum moisture content is reached.) At this point the coffee is rested in a clean, cool and dry environment before secondary processing (milling, grading, sorting).
