Honduras Finca Las Marias
Las Marias is the name of a specific lot within Finca Alto de Los Santos, a family-run farm located in Corquín, Copan. This particular lot is managed by Iris Lorena Perdomo. The farm sits at an elevation of approximately 1,350 m.a.s.l and consists of a total of 45 Ha, of which 18 Ha are planted in coffee, including: 5 in Catuaí, 5 in Caturra and 8 in IHCAFE90. This honey processed lot is made up of the Caturra, Catuai and IHCAFE90 varieties. In addition to coffee, Finca Alto de Los
Santos has many shade, citrus and fruit trees, including: guama, cedar, mahogany, evergreens, peaches and oranges. Not only does the variety of trees offer shade, but they help attract lots of various fauna. Iris Lorena produced her first coffee many years ago with her parents, Don Herminio and Doña Maria and her grandfather, Don Froilán, all of whom transmitted the spirit of coffee growing to their children. Since then, she has been part of a dedicated, passionate, coffee growing family. This is our 4th year working Finca Alto de Los Santos and the various lots within run by different family members and we look forward to future harvests!
In addition to growing coffee, Iris Lorena also works at the CAFESCOR Cooperative where she manages the drying beds for all the specialty coffee lots that are produced throughout the harvest, as well as various social impact programs.
