Over the past few years we’ve been in contact with a group of growers in Copan, western Honduras; these producers are part of the Aruco co-operative, based in Corquin.
Having tasted samples from Aruco for the last two seasons we knew they had a quality focus, with a particular emphasis on micro-lot production. The coffees were very good and improving every year so in March 2022 we were lucky enough to have a chance to visit Honduras and find out more about this relative newcomer to the speciality coffee scene for ourselves.
El Triunfo was one of the producers we visited: Farmed and owned by Luis Molina, El Triunfo - 'the triumph', is a small holding in Las Pacayas, the coffee growing area above the town of Corquin.
This lot is a natural that’s been macerated for 90 hours before drying on raised beds for around 30 days, during the drying stage the coffee is turned hourly.
El Triunfo is our first Honduran coffee - but it won’t be the last!
