These couple of coffee farm videos directly from Teupasenti in Honduras. Catuai, Villa Sarchi, Pacamara and Lempira coffee varieties grow in this beautiful coffee farm. Visit my Honduras coffee section to learn more about Latin America Specialty Coffee.
Honduras is the largest producer of coffee in Central America. It is surprising how little is known about Specialty coffee from Honduras. It was only until 2001 that Honduras’ coffee production has increased drastically. Honduras was a late blossom in the coffee industry compared to its Central America neighbors. Only until recently we have seen fantastic coffee coming from Honduras.
The difficult and detailed process it takes to produce a great cup of coffee in Honduras. Contact me if you like to get coffee from this coffee farm and code with coffee. As you can see the farm is very dense and shares the land with a variety of trees such as banana, oranges and others. This helps to bring the coffee notes more alive.
These coffee farm videos from Teupasenti in Honduras really shows you where specialty coffee comes from. The landscape is fantastic with the biodiversity of this farm. Honduras was producing around six million bags of coffee a year around 2011. This was more than Guatemala and Costa Rica combined.
Teupasenti belongs to the region of El Paraiso. This is one of the oldest and largest coffee regions in Honduras. This coffee farm produces mainly Lempira, Catuai and Villa Sarchi coffee varieties. Contact me if you have any questions or if you like to try coffee from this farm in Honduras. Thank you!
I have visited many places in Latin America and still need to visit many more. Coffee farms Chiriqui Panama are located near the border of Costa Rica in Chiriqui. It takes about 3 hours to reach this city by car driving from Panama City, Panama.
Coffee production first sprang up in Panama in the early 1900s. At that time, though, there was wild coffee throughout the Pacific Ocean side of Panama. It was the Boquete Valley that stood up to lead the burgeoning industry. Pioneering arabica coffee, which the International Coffee Organization today recognizes as some of the highest quality in the world. Panama honey processed coffee is one of the preferred by many coffee lovers due to its caramel and dark chocolate notes.
This farm grows mainly Caturra, Bourbon and some Geisha coffee varieties. There are some old Bourbon coffee plants that still produce great quality coffee cherries. These plants are over 10 years old and harvest once a year. Coffee farms Chiriqui Panama are situated around the same region, but I had the pleasure to visit my friends farm Finca Don Vicente. This is a family owned farm which has been running for generations.
I will be posting more coffee farm pictures during this week about coffee farms I have visited in Latin America. This post its only part of a series of pictures I took at many Latin America coffee farms. If you like you can grab the Panama coffee mug and show your support. Perfect mug to take to work and code with coffee if you’re a developer.
I enjoy taking pictures of coffee farms in Latin America. The idea is to show you where Cocotu’s coffee comes from. I also like to show you the hard work it takes to produce a great cup of specialty coffee and why it’s worth the price.
For most, the above image means nothing. But, this means a lot when grading a coffee farm’s use of chemicals. As you can see little plants are growing one the soil, there are also insects like ants and worms hanging out. If a coffee farm is heavily under pesticide use you would not see life on the ground under the coffee trees.
Quillabamba is a coffee region about 4 hours away by car from Cusco. This coffee region is at the ‘ceja de selva’ means at the border of the jungle. I visited some coffee farms over there together with my friend Raul from Kaffee 3 Granos. Raul showed me the entire coffee process from harvesting to producing a great cup of specialty coffee.
See some of the pictures of Quillabamba’s night life to the beautiful landscapes this coffee region has.
This was a magical experience when I visited this coffee farm in Quillabamba, Cusco in Peru. Watch the videos below where we used a rustic machine made in Peru to remove the coffee pulp from these juicy cherries.
This farm is located a 1800 MASL in Quellouno town which is part of the municipally city of Quillabamba. Quillabamba is a coffee region in Cusco and its located about 4-5 hours by car away from the main Cusco city. Let me know if you have any questions and/or if you like to get coffee from these farms.
Quillabamba coffee town is an unexpected tropical getaway full of waterfalls, delicious coffee and cacao and fresh air. Located in the high jungle (ceja de selva) of the Cusco region. Quillabamba is also known as the city of eternal Summer/Spring for its year-round tropical climate.
Many of the regions that surround Quillabamba coffe town is Santa Ana, Idma, Echarati, Maranura, Quellouno and more amazing coffee regions. These coffee regions families own beautiful coffee farms.
This coffee farm in Quellouno is about 1800 MASL. It was difficult to adapt to the altitude this early in the morning. Some got altitude sickness ‘Soroche’. This is a common experience from rapid transitions from low to high altitude without taking time to acclimate. We started chewing coca leaves to help us. It works! My friend Raul from Kaffee 3 Granos couldn’t handle it even though he lives in a nearby town Quillabamba.
The coffee farm is surrounded by other trees such as bananas, pears and many more typical fruit plants from the region. We got the chance to walk to other coffee farms located in the region. I will post more pictures about this experience very soon.
Traveling from Cusco to Quillabamba is a must see at least once in your life time.
Quillabamba is a city in southern Peru. It is the capital of the province of La Convencion, the largest province in the region of Cusco. It is located in an area called the ceja de selva (border of jungle). Agriculture is the most important activity, mainly coffee, cocoa, tea and cocoa.
