Within the Honduran department of La Paz, which native Lenca inhabitants called “the site of the stone,” two ecosystems predominate alongside the abundance of rock that inspired the earlier moniker: cloud forest and pine forest. This region in southwest Honduras, close to the border with El Salvador, is also home to the city of Lauterique, where a group of smallholder coffee farmers established a wet mill five years ago. Currently, 19 coffee farmers deliver primarily Lempira and IHCAFE-90 to the mill, arriving in the late afternoon during harvest for depulping and 8-10 hours of fermentation. Depending on volume and weather, the coffee is then washed and dried on patios or solar dryers.
