Located in the western part of Honduras, Pacavita is surrounded by biological reserves and mountain ranges. The rainy season results in beautiful cherries, and the clear dry season during harvest allows producers to sun dry coffees once they are washed. The high-altitude weather, rich clay soil, and warm sun ensure that the integrity and quality of the beans is preserved from start to finish. Two primary producers contributed to this lot, Silvestre Vasquez and Joel Lopez. Silvestre is always pushing for a better quality and has expanded his farm into higher altitudes of a mountain called Pico Congolon which is surrounded by the Reserva Biologica de Opalaca and Reserva Biologica Volcan Pacavita. Joel Lopez is a fourth-generation coffee producer. He runs the farm Los Lesquines, where his family began growing coffee in 1865. The farm produces mainly Bourbon, Caturra and Catuai varieties, with a total of 67 hectares in production.
Following a brisk growth in production, lush and mountainous Honduras is now the world’s third-largest producer of washed Arabica. And its future looks ever brighter: Honduras has strengthened its already strong coffee industry with a commitment to revitalizing its infrastructure and its farms. And it has captured the attention of specialty roasters with high-quality beans that are treated with care from the tree to the mill and beyond — and that feature complex, fruity flavors and a bright, juicy acidity.
