About this Coffee

Origin Story: 

Belen Gualcho is the name of a small village in the Ocotepeque department of Honduras. With a population of about 16,000 people, the village is a true jewel located in the middle of the Honduran mountains not far from our own family coffee farms.  

 

We first came across this delicious coffee when Jesus Mata, a local coffee farmer, heard about our family farm, Finca Terrerito (Finca T). Jesus was interested in learning more about our commitment to treating farmers fairly and focusing on helping the communities we partner with, so he decided to go out on a limb and make the journey to Finca T to introduce himself and his coffee to our team.  

 

After a cupping that blew our farm team away, our farm director, Marcial, made the trip to visit the coffee farms in Belen Gaulcho to see their operations first hand and verify their use of sustainable practices. Thanks to Jesus, we were able to get our hands on this delicious coffee from a group of 7 farmers (including Jesus) that have on average 1 to 2 acres each.  

 

Roast Story: 

Grown at 1,700 meters above sea level, Belen Gaulcho is one of our more high-altitude coffee offerings. With denser and more complex beans, we experimented with a range of different light roasts until we landed on one that is among our lightest. Belen Gualcho is a coffee for you If you love acidity and complexity of natural flavor in your coffee. Due to the light nature of this coffee, we recommend avoiding adding any cream or milk to this coffee as the acidity of the coffee does not pair well with dairy.
