Miguel Angel Paz has owned the farm El Pitarrillo for 25 years.

The farm is situated at 1250 masl and is 7 hectares of land, most of which is producing coffee.  

Honduran specialty coffees are classified using a system categorized by the height at which the coffee was grown. Strictly High Grown (SHG), applies to coffees grown above 1200 masl, and High Grown (HG) above 1000 masl.  

Honduras - coffee farm

Honduras has the conditions to produce very good coffees: high altitude, volcanic and fertile soils, an ideal climate and plenty of expertise. 

However,  a lack of investment and inadequate infrastructure means that our suppliers  must work extra hard to find, and support, the best coffees that Honduras offers.
