Honduras El Conejo Honey

from 5.00

One of the most interesting people we met at the Cincinnati Coffee Festival this year was Nelson Amador. Nelson runs a coffee importing business called De La Finca that originated from his family farm in the Comayagua region of Honduras. Today, De La Finca focuses on relationships with farmers that employ organic practices, proudly imports through fair trade, supports women-owned and operated farms, and invests in the communities they partner with by giving back to local schools.

This exceptional coffee comes from a De La Finca family farm: Finca El Conejo. El Conejo is managed by Joel and Elmer Banegas, who are fifth generation coffee farmers. The young entrepreneurs were given a plot of family land by their father to start growing coffee on their own and have taken the task in stride. Elmer took full responsibility for maintaining the land and workers while Joel decided to go to college to study agricultural engineering and specialize in coffee. They have joined forces to make Finca El Conejo one of the few experimental farms in the Comayagua region. Finca El Conejo produced only 29 bags of honey processed coffee this year, and we were thrilled to get our hands on a few of them. We love this preparation of their coffee for its upfront clean taste of chocolate that fades into a fruit medley of fig, bing cherry, strawberry, and pecans.
