This coffee was grown on the Reserva Biologica Volcan Pacavita, a wild life refuge in Honduras. Most farms in this area were established more than 30 years ago, and are between 2 and 3 hectares in size. Many are shaded by beautiful Inga 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, mostly shaded, at elevations of up to 1,700 meters ASL in this area of western Honduras. Many producers wet mill their own coffee and dry it completely on patios, preserving the quality of their beans themselves.
