This coffee, a honey processed Pacas varietal, is what we at Vigilante Coffee call the “ideal morning cup”. Hailing from the world renowned coffee growing region of Santa Bárbara, Honduras. Coffees from Santa Bárbara offer flavor attributes not found anywhere else in Central America. We have found that the best coffee farms are usually helping one another, innovating together, & striving for excellence in coffee farming together. It’s how a region of producers can put their community on the proverbial coffee map. The hillside where Los Quetzales is grown has become the largest supplier of Cup of Excellence auction winners in Honduras. Pedro Sagastume, the farmer behind Los Quetzales said this about the community of coffee farmers in Santa Bárbara: “There exists an eagerness here; a willingness, motivation and ambition to produce the best coffee in the country. The most successful farms with the smartest and most innovative farmers are neighbors on this hillside and they help each other to refine the best of their lots.” Lastly he shared that his, “desire is to improve the processing of {his} coffee from the moment it is picked until the moment it is dried, to improve {his} farm, to produce more and better quality, all of this so {we} continue to buy {his} coffee and support {them} with sustainable prices...To be a coffee producer like {his} father and {his} grandparents, it is {their} tradition, because {he} loves it, because it is an agricultural product that can sustain a family."
