This sweet, rich coffee launches with caramel and fruit aromas then plunges into flavor notes of red apple, florals, and sweet peach. Delicate acidity and velvety body pair up with a hint of baking spice as it cools.Like a spiced caramel apple in a cup!

Meet Victor Ventura

Victor has been involved in coffee since he was 10 years old, and grew up helping his dad and brother on the family farm. At 28, he took over the family business, and now at 38, his passion for coffee only increases. Together with his oldest son, Victor has been working to change the management and varieties at La Fraternidad.

This is the last year that Victor will be growing this pacamara variety, as he is renewing the plantation with bourbon and geisha varieties. The owner of Theodore’s Coffee says, “I have enjoy visiting the Venturas, as they are one of the most welcoming families I know. I love their cooking and appreciate their friendship very highly.”

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'.
