BACKGROUND DETAILS

 

HONDURAS ORGANIC OCOTEPEQUE SHG EP is sourced from family-owned farms organized around Café Ventura, located in the community of El Playón within the municipality of San Marcos in the department of Ocotepeque, Honduras. Café Ventura is owned and operated by Lurvin Ventura and his family, who have been cultivating coffee since 1970 and started to export coffee in 2012. In addition to helping small producers to improve quality and export coffee, Café Ventura donated land for the construction of a kindergarten in El Playón and purchased water filters for the local elementary schools. Producers working with Café Ventura also diversify their income growing corn, beans, and vegetables.
