This week we are visiting another farm in Honduras!
Honey processed Catuai from Alex Ramon Ponce Rodríguez.
Carefully handpicked cherries when ripe after de-pulped the same day; then, the parchment is put directly on raised beds for around 22 days to dry. The parchment with the mucilage is raked every 30 mins using wood sticks; during the drying, the cherries are sorted by hand to remove defective beans.
Alex learned about coffee from his father.
In 2013 Alex's uncle offered him to buy a property in Cabañas, La Paz, where his family originates. After some thinking, he bought it with his saved money from his job at a clothing factory where he worked for 9 years. A year later, he planted coffee trees and started his own farm!
