Details from Finca Terrerito:
Belen Gualcho in the department of Ocopetepeque is a small village of about 16k people and is the jewel in the middle of the Honduran mountains. The highlights of the village where the Lenca people come to buy basic supplies and necessities. As part of Finca Terrerito's approach to connect farmers with roasters, we purchased from a group of 7 farmers that on average have 1 to 2 acres per farmer. One of the farmers, Jesus Mata, heard about Finca T and how we treated farmers fairly and helped the community. He made a trip over to Finca T and introduced himself. After we cupped, and liked the samples, Finca T's Farm Director, Marcial, went up to Belen to see their operations and verify they used sustainable practices. Our goal is to find a home for the coffees we purchased to continue to work with those farmers and neighbors in the future.
