Honduras Norma Erazo

  • The second Honduran coffee for us, this one was produced by a woman named Norma Erazo. Norma is a 27-year old single mother who farms on land she inherited from her father. She only started producing specialty coffee a year ago, and has learned quickly what it takes to make an interesting cup. Most people in the area grow coffee to sell in the commodity market, and don't take the care necessary for exceptional coffee. The farms near the town of Peña Blanca are in the mountains rising above Lake Yojoa, the largest lake in the country. It is in the bowl of a volcanic field, and the rich soil of the rugged mountains makes a great home for coffee. It was only in the 1970s that agriculture took root in the Santa Barbara region, first in vegetables and then coffee. So it's a relatively young industry that's off to a great start with a lot of potential for the future. This is a great every-day drinker.
