Norma Lara is a small producer in Ocotepeque, Honduras, close to the boarder of El Salvador. She has just under two acres of land, given to her by her father in 2010. She works in the cupping room at Cocafelol co-op, and is striving to produce better quality coffee every year. Norma really sees coffee as a legitimate career and means of livelihood for her and her kids. She and her daughter take classes at the co-op learning organic horticulture methods, processing methods, and cupping for quality. Her daughter opened up a small cafe in their community. We love supporting Norma and her strive to elevate her family through coffee.
We took a different roasting approach to this coffee. Our goal was to develop the coffee a little more, bringing out the milk chocolate notes while maintaining the buttery body and light orange notes.
