Progress Coffee Roasting
Direct Trade Honduras Santa Lucia
2019 was amazing in many ways and one very special reason is a new relationship we have formed with coffee producers in Honduras. We have worked together to order and set aside some amazing Fair Trade, Organic and Honey Process options that are all Direct Trade. That means that the farmers/producers themselves secure higher earning for the coffee we buy.
Finca Santa Lucia is tucked away in the little village of Tres Piños, over two and half hours away from the nearest city, Comayagua, Honduras. Raul Rodriguez, a third-generation coffee producer, owns and operates the farm and lives there happily with his wife and three dogs. He inherited this farm from his father, Don Ermenegildo Rodriguez—one of the biggest coffee innovators of his time. Having a vision for specialty coffee, his father introduced the world to exotic varietals such as Yellow Bourbon, Typica, and Caturra.
