Rich Soils and Shady Trees Surrounded by a diverse environment of biological reserves and mountain ranges, the Pacavita region has ideal climatic conditions for growing coffee. Coffee plants grow in rich clay soils, shaded by Inga trees, at elevations of up to 1,700 meters ASL in this area of western Honduras. Download Fact Sheet
The Maya civilization flourished in Western Honduras for hundreds of years, with a large population center around Copán. Today their descendants, the Ch'orti' live on in western Honduras.
Well-Defined Seasons Well-defined seasons contribute to the quality of specialty coffees from Pacavita. The rainy season results in beautiful cherries, and the clear dry season allows farmers to sun dry them. The high-altitude weather, rich clay soil, and warm sun ensure that the integrity and quality of the beans is preserved from start to finish.
30 Years of Coffee Farming Most farms in the area were established more than 30 years ago, and are between 2 and 3 hectares in size. Many are shaded by beautiful Inga trees.
Hands-on, Start to Finish Many producers wet mill their own coffee and dry it completely on patios, taking pride in preserving the quality of their beans. Cherries are 100% manually picked, which ensures that only the ripest cherries are harvested.
