This coffee comes from: fifth generation coffee farmers, Joel and Delmer, are two young entrepreneurs who were given a plot of land by Joel's father (Joel Banegas Sr, Finca Mira Flores) to start growing coffee. Delmer took full responsibility for maintaining the land and workers while Joel decided to go to college to study agricultural engineering and specialize in coffee. They have joined forces to make Finca El Conejo one of the few experimental coffee farms in the Comayagua region.
We’re really excited to be working alongside of these brothers and the work they are doing in Honduras. This coffee is an outstanding example of the hard work going on behind the scenes in specialty coffee.
