    A superb producer whose willingness to explore new and improved quality methods have helped create this beautiful coffee.

    Finca El Aguacate was established 25 years ago by the producer Tomas Soza Calderon and his family. In 2017 after the death of Tomas Soza, the farm was divided among his four male children, generating four lots of land and retaining the name of “El Aguacate” in the lot now owned by Nelson Soza Euceda, one of the four children. Nelson was born in the late 1970’s, and along with his wife has fathered four boys, currently aged 18, 14, 11 and 5 years
    The plantation contains trees that are 10 years old and averages an annual production of 60qq of dry parchment. The parcel of land is just 1 hectare and situated at 1600 meters above sea level. The farm is located about 3 kilometers from the Nelson Soza’s residence, in a community called Las Aradas in the municipality of San Jerónimo, Comayagua, Honduras.
    After handpicking the cherry is processed and slowly over 10 days in solar dryers. The farm being some distance from Nelson’s residence means that carrying materials and organic agricultural practice is more complicated and expensive, especially during the rainy season.

    The cultivation of coffee for this family represents their heritage and livelihood since more than 90% of their income depends on the sale of coffee. Nelson Soza has been an active member of the COAPROCL cooperative since November 2017, where, in agreement with his brothers, he took the place of his father Tomas Soza Calderon, who unfortunately died in October of that same year. Nelson currently serves as vice-president of the COAPROCL. This coffee is Fairtrade, but they don’t sell it as a Fairtrade coffee.

      Tried something different - glad I did

      I searched through Jasper Coffee's special releases and found this one from Honduras and thought I'd give it a try for something different. Definitely appeals to my palette!
