Sulma Lopez Honduras
Toasted Almond, Milk Chocolate, Citrus Creme
We are proud to enter our third season working with Catracha and the community of farmers they support.
12 Ounce bags and 5 Pound bags of this special coffee are available.
This micro-lot was produced by Sulma Lopez on her 2-acre farm called Buena Vista in the municipality of Santa Elena within the department of La Paz, Honduras. Sulma is part of a select group of producers who work with Catracha Coffee Company, which organizes monthly educational seminars that provide guidance for harvesting and coffee processing that is focused on quality. Traditionally, farmers in Santa Elena have sold their coffee in cherry to a middleman, eliminating the possibility of earning better prices based on the quality of the coffee. With improved prices, Sulma has been able to improve her farm management practices using lime to control the pH of the soil, fertilizing with organic compost, and spraying organic fungicides to control levels of leaf rust. These actions have improved the health of her farm and the quality of her coffee production. Sulma processes her coffee using her own micro-mill to depulp, ferment, wash and dry her coffee before delivering it to Catracha Coffee.
