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.
