Cup Characteristics: Caramel Sweetness, Orange like acidity, Buttery Body
Pedro Romero shows his leadership among the 80 Farm members of COCAFCAL in the community of Las Capucas in Western Honduras. On our visit this year, Pedro Antonio showed us around the Cooperative taking great pride in his contributions to the “Model Farm”. This farm shows other farmers in the cooperative how they can diversify their plantings to include Pink Cedar Trees, ornamental plants, palms and a variety of fruit trees. This environment allows the birds, frogs and squirrels to thrive. By using no chemical pesticides this has encouraged the animal friendly environment and the Coop has gained it’s Organic, Rain Forest Alliance and Fair Trade certificates.
Having the determination to pick only the ripest cherries, using washed and pulped natural fermentation processes and his solar dryers has given his coffees a sweet acidity with a silky body that we are all loving!
