Rich Soils and Shady Trees
Surrounded by a diverse environment of biological reserves and mountain ranges, the
Pacavita region has ideal climatic conditions for growing coffee. Coffee plants grow in rich clay
soils, shaded by Inga trees, at elevations of up to 1,850 meters in this area of western Honduras.
Following a brisk growth in production, this lush and mountainous country is now the world’s third largest producer of washed Arabica. And the future looks bright - Honduras
has strengthened its already strong coffee industry with a commitment to revitalizing its farms with new plantings. Offering a wide range of coffees, Honduras has recently
captured the attention of specialty roasters with high-quality beans treated with care from the tree to the mill and beyond.
Well-defned seasons contribute to the quality of specialty coffees
from Pacavita. The rainy season results in beautiful cherries, and the
clear dry season allows farmers to sun dry them. The high-altitude
weather, rich clay soil, and warm sun ensure that the integrity and
quality of the beans is preserved from start to finish.
