This good good coffee is sourced by Catracha Coffee Company in collaboration with Edmundo Sanchez who produced this micro-lot on a 2.5 acre farm called El Mango located in the municipality of Santa Elena within the department of La Paz, Honduras. Catracha Coffee is a social enterprise that was established in 2010 and works with a select group of farmers who participate in monthly educational meetings to improve upon their coffee production. These capacity building opportunities have helped Edmundo increase yields and improved the coffee quality for export. Edmundo receives all the profits associated with the sales of his exported coffee, which is the main source of income for Edmundo his wife and their three children.
Relationships, y’all. This is our second year buying from Catracha project. Mayra Orellana Powell started Catracha Coffee in 2010 in order to help individual farmers improve the quality of their coffee so that they can 👏 get 👏 that 👏 money. She’s helping push Honduran coffee to the next level, and for that we are infinitely grateful/stoked. This lot from Edmundo is hella sessionable and a perfect example of Honduran coffee. I.e. really fudging tasty.
