  • Edgar's vision is being able to overcome and improve the quality of life of his family. He started coffee production with a farm that his father inherited to him in 1998 and  since then, he has have been fighting to keep it in good condition and betting on quality. His mother, daughter, & nephews depend on it. It is a heritage that he cannot forget because it is what surpasses them in these times.

    Finca Piedra Blancais located in Belen Gualcho, Ocotepeque one of the areas most recognized for its excellent coffee quality. Belén is located at altitudes ranging from 1650 to 1750 meters above sea level in the slopes of the Honduran Cordillera of Celaque.
    Belén Gualcho means "place of many waters" in the local Lenca language. The 95% of the population is of indigenous Lenca origin.

    Belén Gualcho is a very cold area, therefore, the coffee can be left in the pilas overnight and pulped the next day, this helps the fermentation process not be so accelerated.
    The first thing Don Edgar does is pulp the coffee in a small mill he has near the farm, then it is transferred in polypropylene bags to the Beneficio San Marcos mill to be able to pre-dry it in patios, after 2 days of sun. Then it is transferred to African-type solar dryers for final drying to achieve a humidity no higher than 11%.
    This process can take up to 30 days depending on the weather and that the temperature is not higher than 25 degrees. Rigorous care is taken to move it constantly to prevent the coffee from over-fermenting.
