18/19 Harvest Report
Overall quality was very good and production was average. With lower prices continuing on for a few years now, regionally there is less fertilization and less farm upkeep like pruning, shade management, and leaf rust control.
in the Grower's words
As a producer we are very grateful first to God and then with CAFESA and with the customers who buy my coffee. I am a member of CAFESA and I have felt the postive changes brought by being a part of the cooperative. Now we are able offer our coffee to other markets and try harder to produce quality and hopefully receive a fairer price for our work. To Coffee Unified's customers: we hope that at some time you can visit us so that you know more closely the work we do to acheive the heighest quality... and so you can further trust and and have confidence in your partners here in Honduras while learing the history of our origin and of our coffee.
