Honduras Miraflores Honey

  • In my first trip to Honduras I flew into San Pedro Sula, which sits directly on the cocaine trade route, formerly the murder capital of the world and epicenter of the banana republic. Honduras was never a place known for excellence in coffee, but a lot of work has been done over the past few years to change that. Benjamin Paz and his father own a mill and export company called San Vicente in the lakeside town of Peña Blanca, and have been working with local farmers like Juan Contreras at Finca Miraflores to produce outstanding coffees that earn more money for the farmers. The trip was fruitful and (unlike my girlfriend at the time) our relationships with Benjamin and Juan remain strong.
