The coffees from Honduras can be so amazing when they are from the right places and are processed well. They often have more complexity, depth and richness than other Central American coffees. Pozo Negro stood out as a community with delicious specialty coffees, and enormous potential to produce more if producers could find a market.
The collective partnered with different producers in and around the Pozo Negro community to offer them financial security and learn and share knowledge. This group of producers is making an enormous effort and reinvests back into their infrastructure and production. It will be important to assist them to further develop quality and increase the amount they earn for their coffee over time.
