ABOUT THIS COFFEE
This coffee is grown by Jose Rolando Alfaro and was dry milled at Beneficio San Vicente. Beneficio San Vicente is a family owned and operated dry mill and exporter located in the town of Pena Blanca in Northwestern Honduras. Founder and longtime coffee buyer Fidel Paz constructed the current milling facility in 2000 as production in the surrounding area (Santa Barbara) increased, affording the family the opportunity to connect their producing community directly to international buyers. Fidel’s sons Benjamin and Fidel, as well as nephew Arturo, play integral roles in their unique and holistic approach to creating opportunity with and for the local producing community. Over the years, San Vicente has become a financing partner for new and existing growers, allowing producers to find buyers willing to pay fair and competitive prices instead of floor prices. Additionally, they are regularly available to deliver farm-level agronomic consultation as well as advice for processing cherry to produce the highest quality possible. As a result, the number of farmers separating and differentiating their coffees for sale into the specialty market is growing each year. To best support these producers, San Vicente does not buy their coffees as an intermediary, but rather connects these producers directly to buyers for more transparent price negotiations. Coffees produced within the San Vicente community frequently place as finalists in the national Cup of Excellence competition year after year, establishing the mill and family as a globally recognized leader among specialty coffee producers in Honduras.

    This is a can’t miss, get it while you can!
    While I have never had a coffee I didn’t love from Modest; Peru – Cafe Capili is my new fav! The aroma just opening the bag was enough to win me over but the brew ( pour over) was the clincher. Thank you for your superb roasts!
