About this coffee
Pacayal Coffee was born out of the resilience of Honduran farmers who refused to give up on coffee production in the face of the Roya outbreak of 2013, a spreading fungus that infects the foliage of a coffee tree. While their fellow farmers considered emigrating to the United States in search of the American Dream, Edgar and Karen Carillo realized they had great coffee and could start a business that would earn quality-driven farmers a better price through direct market access. In 2014 they founded Pacayal Coffee, which has since grown to 134 members, 54 of whom are women. The motto of the organization is “quality does not suffer the crisis,” speaking to the dedication of Pacayal Coffee to produce exceptional coffee and improve the livelihoods of farmers.
Pacayal Coffee invests in several initiatives for producers, including best agricultural practices training to prevent Roya, economic empowerment programs for women, sustainable production practices training, and quality research to develop award-winning coffees.
Pacayal Coffee's dedication to quality has proven to pay off. All these efforts result in a coffee that is rich and inviting with its sweetness. Feel free to cozy up with this cup of coffee by itself, or enjoy with a splash of milk.
