Coffee Story:

We are pleased to have this coffee back for a second year in a row, showcasing the farming diligence of Maria Elena Vasquez Marquez. The quality of her work is easy to identify after just one sip of this brew. This coffee is produced through hard work and positivity, and in collaboration with the Catracha Coffee Company. A story line of transparency and promotion of opportunities for this community of coffee farmers continues to be at the fore front, as goals and objectives continue to be attained.

To introduce (yet again) the talented producer behind this cup of coffee, Maria Elena Vasquez Marquez. Maria Elena produced this micro lot on a 2-acre farm called El Manzano, located in the municipality of Santa Elena within the department of La Paz, Honduras. Maria Elena participates in monthly educational seminars to improve upon her coffee quality and production. These capacity building opportunities that are promoted and led by Catracha Coffee Company, have assisted in both quality improvements and crop yield increases. Maria Elena receives all the profits associated with the sale of her exported coffee. This is Maria’s main source of income for her and her 20-year-old son, Adelso Danilo. Adelso is rapidly learning the business of coffee production to further assist his mother Maria Elena and continue the tradition of coffee farming for years to come. Without further ado ~ cheers and enjoy.
