DESCRIPTION

The Santa Barbara department sits west of Honduras along the border of Guatemala and is the second-biggest coffee producer in the country.

Honduras offers a challenging environment for the cultivation of coffee; although the tropical climate combined with high altitudes are perfect, the lack of rich volcanic soil and high humidity add complexity.

Will Edilberto Armijo owns Finca Paraiso en las Alturas in the San José de Los Andes village of Las Vegas, Santa Barbara. His estate is located in the heart of the Santa Barbara Mountains, west of Lake Yojoa, and is home to several varietals, most recently Geisha trees.

After being harvested, the cherries are processed directly on the farm and spread on solar dryers. Due to the high moisture in the air, the solar dryers are placed in a greenhouse-like construction, where air flows, leaving the beans protected from the humidity and unpredictable rainfalls. To sublimate each varietal, Will and his team keep the cherries and bean separate to preserve their terroir and aromas.
