    In June of 2018 Tim, our co-founder, went to Honduras for approximately 36 hours. He had been in contact with Benjamin Paz of Beneficio San Viscente for several months trying to nail down the best time to come down and cup. It's an extremely busy time of year in Honduras, with all the fresh harvests arriving at the mill, and the logistics kept falling through. Finally, he got an email; come on down, we're ready for you. Booking a last minute flight, he was on his way to a country he'd never been to to buy coffees we've never brought in before.

    After a red-eye flight, Tim arrived at San Viscente bright and early and cupped through several tables of coffees. The best coffees were sweet, clean and very balanced. Caramel, milk chocolate and beautiful florals tones were prominent. Pleased with what he was tasting, he made our final selections then headed out to make good use of the afternoon by visiting several nearby producers we were working with.

    The farm of Gerardo Trejo was up first and it was a stunner! The farm is straight out of a nature documentary, situated high in the volcanic Santa Barbara mountain range with a breath-taking view of Lake Yojoa. Gerardo proudly showed off his heathy coffee trees, telling Tim about his sustainable farming practices. His natural fertilizers and excellent agricultural practices led to a bumper crop this year despite production being down around 50% in Honduras this year due to frost. After visiting several more producers the following day, it was time to fly home in the afternoon. Yes, it was a quick trip, and we only glimpsed what Honduras has to offer, but we were rewarded with some amazingly sweet, balanced coffees.
