Honduras Alto de los Santos Natural Coffee

Finca Alto de los Santos Natural is the second coffee we bought this year from the producer’s co-op CAFESCOR (Cafés Especiales Corquin). Last May, Francesco and Miguel had the opportunity to visit the region of Copan (Western Honduras, not far from the border with Guatemala) to visit some of the farms, the HQ of the cooperative, the wet and the dry mills, and the organic fertilizer production plant where CAFESCOR transform the by-products of coffee into organic fertilizers to be distributed among its farmer members.

For NCR this visit marked an important step towards a more sound and direct relationship with our coffee suppliers. Indeed, during the visit, we closed a contract to import our first coffee container directly sourced from CAFESCOR.

In the year of 1920, Don Froilán Gámez arrives from the neighbouring country Guatemala, accompanied by his parents and siblings, at that time he was 5 years old and settled in the Jimilile community of the municipality of Corquín, Copán. Time passed and at 25 he got married, forming a family of 3 children, given the conditions of the area and having the obligation of his family, the need arose to find a crop alternative that would generate income for his daily life. He started to grow coffee together with his eldest son Herminio Perdomo, starting by planting the varieties of arabigo, caturra and bourbon, in some plots that he himself had acquired during the time he lived in the area in the company of his wife.

  • Flavour: Rich and fruity with light notes of fermented grape and berries. Full body and creamy mouthfeel. Perfect as straight espresso or blended with milk.
  • Origin: Copan, Honduras
  • Varietal: Lempira, Caturra, Catuai and Parainema
