Honduras - Rigoberto Rodriguez
Catracha extends help to farmers by not only developing unique direct profit sharing systems — they also help establish education sessions and provide resources. This year, Rigoberto was able to use lime and organic fertilizer purchased by Catracha to start transitioning away from synthetic fertilizers. By also applying organic fungicides and pesticides made from a compost tea, Rigoberto's farm is on track to be fully organic in just two years, which creates better sustainability in soil quality and transfers quality to coffee. We’re excited to have this coffee back again, and thrilled to have this partnership with Rigoberto and Catracha.
We are very happy to bring back Rigoberto Rodriguez’ coffee in partnership with the Catracha project in Santa Elena, La Paz, Honduras. Catracha works with select producers that meet monthly to learn about improving quality and yields. We met the founder of this project, Mayra Orellana-Powell, during a trip to El Salvador in last year and learned about her great work. This micro-lot was produced specifically for Ruby, and we’re thrilled to have it back on the menu.Region: Santa Elena, La Paz
