Opening with a hit of sweet nectarine, this coffee layers fresh plum and then dried dates. It's an outstanding example of a classic Honduran flavor profile that sits easy on the palate and rich in the cup.

Meet Lucía Portillo

Doña Lucía is a sweet and hardworking lady. Mother of 12, when her husband died almost 30 years ago, she carried on their common dream of growing amazing coffee. The farm started with a 3 acre plantation: she ran the commercial side of the business while he tended the coffee. Since then, Finca El Guayabo has grown in size and production, and Lucia continues to be an integral part, doing “a little bit of everything,” she says.

Currently only the youngest of her children still lives with her, Rigoberto, who says his mother is still full of energy and passionate about coffee. The team at Theodore’s love visiting her there at Finca El Guayabo and enjoying her delicious food. Darwin Pavon of Theodore’s Coffee says, “Come and join us in a trip and meet her. We promise you this sweet lady will change your world!”

San Marcos, Ocotepeque, Honduras

In the southwest corner of Honduras, hard on the borders of Guatemala and El Salvador, we find the Ocotepeque region. Here mountains are cloud-shrouded, volcanic soils lend their coffee-friendly nutrients, and microclimate coax the best out of the beans.

Specialty grade coffee in Honduras has traveled a long and difficult road. In 1998, just as a small number of coffee farmers and exporters were finding their way into the American specialty coffee market, Honduras was devastated first by hurricane Mitch, and then by the storms and floods of 1999.

In addition, most of the country’s coffee is produced by smallholders. Lack of infrastructure means many process and dry their coffee themselves and mix these small lots together to sell to exporters. It sounds neighborly, but the results can be disappointing. However, this scenario is changing, bringing an explosion of quality coffees from Honduras to coffee lovers worldwide.

Theodore's Coffee

Darwin Pavon founded Theodore's Coffee in 2014, after years working in Honduras collecting soil samples from farmers' fields in a push to create fertilizers for stronger growth and yield. Each Honduran coffee imported for Theodore's is sourced from a friend of Darwin's in the ultimate Direct Trade relationship. Pavon says,

"At Theodore's our passion is to bring to you superior quality coffee, serve you with excellence and create loyalty from you to our products and services in the coffee industry."

Every coffee you buy from Theodore's helps support The Micah Project, in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, where young men and boys who have grown up on the streets or in extreme poverty are trained in leadership and healthy life skills. Pavon has a strong passion to support The Micah Project, as he was an original Micah's resident who 'made good'.
