ABOUT MACAW ESPRESSO

Blinding Coffee From The Peaks

All of Cafesmo's farms are Fairtrade certified. Even more importantly: through careful selection, they are slowly perfecting the varieties that they grow on specific altitudes or soils, as well as their growing techniques, and are now able to offer an expanding array of speciality profiles.

At the beginning of 2019, they have exported their first container of micro-lots, to Notes Coffee Roasters. The area where they cultivate coffee, a large zone around the hills of Mercedes, is located in the very south of Honduras, a stone’s throw from El Salvador and Guatemala. Their plantations are protected by some of the country’s highest peaks.

Mercedes, the epicentre of our activities at 1,350 meters (4,500 ft), is where our dry and wet mills are also located. This is where much of Cafesmo coffees are dried and processed, and many of our members live in a wide circle around it. While temperatures vary according to exact altitude (the lowest part around 1250 meters and the highest part from 1,500 to 1,600) the conditions are comparable. The soil is typically clayey and loam, with plenty of nutrients and natural shadow, is mostly provided by cypresses, liquidambar, and lamcinca trees. Most farmers plant fruit trees for additional shadows, like bananas, plantains, and often various types of citrus trees, which also add a typical, rich flavour to the coffee beans. Rainfall is generous when it’s most needed, from May to October when the plants need water to grow healthy beans. During the harvest season, from November to March, it’s generally dry, which means access roads can be improved and farmers can do their work in ideal weather conditions.
