Roger Dominguez - Finca Las Flores
Honduras, a small but mighty country at the heart of Central America, is the perfect place for growing coffee thanks to its ideal location and terroir. In fact, Honduras is the world's fourth largest producer of Arabica coffee, right after Brazil, Colombia, and Ethiopia. Despite facing challenges such as weather events and coffee leaf rust, the specialty coffee industry in Honduras is only getting better and stronger.
Finca Las Flores is located in the stunning La Paz coffee region of Honduras, just near the southern tip of the Honduran/Salvadoran border. The farm's high altitude and cooler climate allow the coffee cherries to ripen slowly, resulting in more delicious and flavorful coffee.

What is a microlot coffee?
Microlots are absolute knock-out coffees that are the result of a lot of hard work, dedication to the craft of coffee, and a commitment to the excellence of our coffee farmers. They are considered the best of the best and available only in limited quantities.
Through our terrific supply chain partners, we source our microlots from some of the most innovative producers around, and we pay a premium for the extra effort and attention to detail that goes into each and every cup.
What is the natural process in coffee?
Did you know that coffee beans grow inside a fruit called the coffee cherry? After the harvest, there are several steps involved in separating the coffee beans from the fruit flesh. This process is called the processing method and it plays a significant role in the final taste of the coffee.
The ripe coffee cherries are picked, and then they are spread out to dry with the fruit flesh still surrounding the beans. During the drying process, the beans absorb the delicious fruit flavors and sweetness. To ensure even air circulation and slow, even drying, they are regularly turned.
Depending on the local climate, sun-drying can take up to two weeks until the moisture level reaches 10-12%. Finally, the dried fruit flesh surrounding the beans is removed, and the beans are sorted by size, density, and color before being bagged and shipped
