Methodical Coffee & Tea - Honduras - Santa Lucia Family
A perfectly cultivated coffee with rich flavors of chocolate, almond butter, and caramel. 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. Perfectly planted in Montaña de La Choca, a national mountain reserve, Finca Santa Lucia is surrounded by a cloud forest full of exotic wildlife. The well-defined seasons in this region contribute to the high quality of specialty coffees.
