  • Story

Before the first man, she hid the firmament into the river. Once in the water the stars spread notes of apricot & mango and sliding down from the mountain, they reborn on the buttery & smooth hills of Copán.

  • Producer

Osman Romero Melgar is the owner of the farm San Isidro, located in the Celaque area of the Copán region of Honduras. Osman is a trained agronomist and is an important member of the Aruco Cooperative, managing production and administration.

Aruco is a small coop named after the river that runs through the town of Corquin, where the coop is based. Aruco was formed in 2010 by a number of producers who were frustrated with the lack of support and representation they were receiving, and who wanted to market their coffee more directly, in an attempt to cut out middle men and to increase the revenue flow back down the supply chain to producers. Osman was one of the first producers within Aruco to start producing micro-lots and to try new processing methods; and so was influential in the succes of the spread of quality improvements throughout the coop.

The farm is 10 hectares, most of which is in coffee production, but under natural forest and has been handed down to Osamn from his parents. The main variety grown is Catuai, but Osman has been planting rust-resistant varieties such as Lempira, Ihcafe90 and Parainema, mostly for their high production. This Catuai lot was processed as a natural. The cherries were delivered to the Aruco mill where they were sorted and cleaned before being dried on raised beds.
