About this coffee;
This coffee comes from a group of female Lenca producers in Lempira department in the Opalaca region of Honduras and is exclusive to Ue Coffee Roasters in the UK.
The Lenca are the largest indigenous group in Honduras, there are an estimated 100,000 Lenca in the country, with their activity primarily focused around cultivation of agricultural crops.
Following two major hurricanes in 2020, much of their drying infrastructure for processing coffee in this region was damaged. A premium of 15c/lb was paid on this coffee to facilitate the building of a community drying station with raised parabolic beds. The station is available for free for the producers of the group. They receive training to use the thermo hygrometer and moisture meter to help them track air temperature, humidity and the moisture content of their drying coffee to help ensure the final quality of their processed crop.
