Honduras, nestled almost at the midpoint between two oceans, boasts the distinction of being one of Central America's largest coffee producers, accounting for approximately 4% of global production.
Coffee cultivation in Honduras dates back to the early 19th century when Spanish colonizers began coffee production along the Caribbean coast. After gaining independence, coffee gradually became a pivotal part of the country's economy.
Today, it follows banana exports as a significant source of income.
The coffee industry has gained strength in recent years, rivaling banana production for economic prominence in the country. This transition reflects the resilience and growth of the coffee sector in Honduras, as it continues to make its mark on the global coffee stage.
This coffee hails from the Copan region in Honduras, specifically from the high-altitude Beatriz Farm, nestled at an elevation of 1350 meters above sea level in the picturesque Callejones.
The unique geographical advantage of this region contributes to the coffee's exceptional flavor profile.
Beatriz Farm, in addition to coffee cultivation, also nurtures cacao trees, infusing hints of cocoa into the coffee's character. Surrounded by fruit trees, the coffee plants absorb the essence of their surroundings, adding subtle fruity notes to the Honduras Finca Beatriz Organic coffee experience.
Beatriz arrived to our roastery via EL CAFÉ, a company established in 2000 by Vasileios G. Anastasopoulos that is solely concerned in the coffee producing countries with discovering new coffee varieties on special farms.
Since then they supplie most of the largest coffee producing companies in Greece, by remaining as a dedicated green coffee import and trading company.

Natural coffee processing, a method where coffee cherries are dried with their fruit intact, is an integral part of Honduras' coffee heritage. In this process, ripe cherries are hand-picked and laid out to dry in the sun, often on raised beds or patios. The hot and dry climate in regions like Copan is conducive to natural processing, which can take several weeks. During this time, the cherries are regularly turned to ensure even drying.
This method enhances the coffee's fruity and complex flavors, creating a distinct profile.
Natural processing has gained popularity in Honduras and adds a delightful dimension to the country's coffee offerings, including those from farms like Finca Beatriz.
