Coffee arrived in Honduras in the early 18th Century, but it is only in the last decade or so that it has received due recognition as a producer of exceptional-quality coffee. The country currently has registered 110,000 coffee producers, 92% of whom are considered to be small-scale producers. Farmer Edgardo Orellana’s farm, Finca El Cerron is located in the Ocotepeque region of Honduras, near the South-Western border shared with El Salvador. It covers an area of 7 hectares, and was first planted in 1998. The farm grows an Arabica varietal known as Pacas, which is a natural mutation of the Bourbon varietal, and was first recorded in El Salvador in 1949. The farm is situated between 1550 and 1660 meters above sea-level, has a cool, pleasant climate and is surrounded by thick pine forest. The coffee trees on Mr Orellana’s farm flower between April and May, and are ready for harvest between December and April. The fruit is collected by hand to ensure that only the ripest are selected, which results in a consistently high-quality cup. Mr. Orellana is a member of COCAFELOL, a co-operative that is dedicated to supporting coffee farmers in the Ocotepeque region, assisting with production, marketing, financing, and export of their produce.
