The story behind this coffee is interesting one. Nordic Approach whom we work with and buy a lot of our coffees through (they do unreal genuine work out there that needs to be recognised!) went in search of an area in Honduras that would expand the offering of this insanely good coffee producing country. They partnered with a group of 60 producers in an area called Intibuca and called it the Intibuca project. The producers come together to exchange ideas, learn from each other and help each other improve the quality of their coffees.
The producers have been reinvesting their enormous efforts back into infrastructure and production on the farms. This development has led to more traceability and separation of high quality micro lots like this coffee. This is not normal for Honduran producers so its great to see it. Nordic Approach says "Our aim in working with this group is to find them a stable market for these coffees, and to assist them to further develop quality, and increase the amount they earn for their coffee over time."
