Honduras La Bendicion
In the hills of El Cedral, Ramón Rodríguez grows Bourbon and Pacas at an altitude of 1500 - 1550 meters above sea level. The area is close to the micro-regions of El Cielito, Las Flores and El Sauce where we work with several other quality focused producers. Ramon grows a small quantity of high-quality coffee, and in previous years has been a finalist in the prestigious Honduras Cup of Excellence competition. After going through the washed process the coffee needs to be dried to between 10% and 11% moisture to prolong shelf life, and maintain quality. In El Cedral this can be difficult because the weather is often cool, and humid. One of 49th’s longest growing partners (over 9 years), Ramon continually impresses us with his consistent coffee quality and we're always happy to see his coffees come into the roastery each year!
