Honduras - Jorge Galdamez
Ocotepeque in Western Honduras is quickly developing a reputation as one of the country’s finest coffee producing areas. The region borders both El Salvador and Guatemala.
This coffee is sourced from Jorge Galdamez at his finca, in San Marcos de Ocotepeque. He is a 4th generation farmer as his great grandparents were some of the first coffee producers in the region. The coffee plants on his farm are all native varietals.
Jorge is very community-minded and protective of the environmental wellness of Honduran soil and lands. With the support of a World Vision project, he was trained in coffee processing, roasting, cupping and as a barista. It is with these skills that he helps a small group of 15 producers improve their coffee quality, facilitates market access, and teaches them to convert the wastewater from honey-processing into organic crop fertilizer.
