We are leading in to our seventh year in the mighty nation of Honduras and are blown away with seeing these coffees flourish in quality and the producers excel in their argricultural prowess. We’ve witnessed first hand their personal growth through our direct investment as a coffee roaster - just look at Nahun Fernandez and his family, this year placing 13th in the Honduras Cup of Excellence (COE) 2018. Nahun is a 3rd generation coffee grower, he has been working with new varietals and experimental lots (honeys, naturals and anaerobic fermentation), he’s also acquired new farms through our investment which has lead to growth in every single coffee production.
In 2011 Honduras suffered a bad rust attack and Nahún´s farm was no exception, he lost his whole harvest and the majority of his plantation. His family got financing and started again, replanting all the plantations, they are still repaying the loan.
Proud Mary brings projects to every coffee farmer we work with and invests in coffee regions to make a real difference and induce positive social change for the future. When you buy Proud Mary Honduran coffees, this is what you’re helping us do!
