The country of Honduras is a suitable location for coffee harvesting. The soil, climate, and conditions in Honduras are the same as neighboring countries. There is a range of coffee quality from Honduras; the country can produce a lower-cost Central American blender coffee, to high-grown specialty lots that rival more popular Central American coffees. This particular type is more complex than its HG counterpart; thus making it a specialty coffee.
SHG (Strictly High Grown) specifies that the coffee was grown at an altitude around 1350 meters. Coffee grown at a higher altitude and lower temperature produces a slower maturing fruit and a denser bean; which creates a more desirable specialty cup; this classification is higher than HG.
We work with a selected cluster of producer organizations and cooperatives across the country in order to manage a traceable supply chain and consistent quality. By sourcing from different producers throughout the crop cycles we are able to source the best beans to match our developed cup profile.
Fairtrade premiums help tackling the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the most vulnerable. It enables producers to improve their position and have more control over their lives.

To date our Head Barista Aron has made over a million of coffees during his time, that’s a lot right? His dedication and skill has benefited coffee shops around the E.U., Canada, New York & his home city London. In 2010 Aron started with a mobile espresso van which taught him just how difficult it can be to manage different bean densities in England’s inclement weather. Determined to master the art of consistency, he spent days testing coffees from around the world, roasting different blends to formulate a recipe that would deliver a consistent base flavour within a temperature range of -5’c to 35’c. Most coffee shops are fitted with air conditioning units which assist in maintaining that consistency, but without that luxury Aron’s understanding of the volatility of coffee grew considerably.
The business expanded in 2011 when both Aron and his wife, Clare, took on a failing coffee shop after the recession with aim to give it life. With previous experience in hospitality and business management, their dedication and hard graft paid off and The Espresso Lounge Tring is a successful coffee shop and cafe with several TripAdvisor awards and fantastic reviews.
They remain within this lucrative industry to date and can offer invaluable knowledge to new business start ups or those wishing to train their baristas to the highest possible standard. Barista equipment, coffee machines, sales training and business consultancy are all available through Barista Life and can set your business on the path to success.
