sweet citrus fragrance, good acidity with sweet orange flavor, notes of vanilla custard, and a creamy body and finish.
On the picturesque slopes
of the Montecillos Mountain Range, a cooperative of small, Honduran coffee growers produce high-quality, sustainable coffee as a whole community.
Every year the Kingdom Growers cooperative works with approximately 200 small farm holders, providing them with access to an expanding eco-friendly knowledge base with a variety of training and farm management resources, including proper techniques for processing and milling. Farmers work together with the goal of increasing yields while collectively raising income for everyone’s benefit. Farmers here have realized the need for high grade, specialty coffee and we have really loved the extra care that Kingdom Growers takes to ensure its quality. The farms generally range in size from 1 – 12 acres and are spread between elevations of 4000 to 5200 feet. The lots are handpicked and centrally processed to ensure ideal cup quality.
Kingdom Growers has been working to aid in the development of sustainable farming practices and to empower coffee-growing farmers, families and communities to adopt their own solutions. Founded in Siguatepeque and known to locals as “Cultivadores del Reino,” its mission seeks to provide technical guidance and assistance in order to increase productivity, improve cup quality, and promote interdependence. Kingdom Growers also assists farmers with market access and advocates for farm-to-cup transparency to help deepen connections between farmers and consumers.
The Montecillos region is comprised of the smaller locales of La Paz, Comayagua, Santa Barbara and Intibuca; it is one of six major, Honduran coffee-growing regions as defined by The Honduran Institute of Coffee, IHCAFE. Montecillos is known for its coffee with fruity, peach and citrus profiles, with a pleasing aftertaste and smooth body. The region is mainly comprised of Bourbon, Catuí, Caturra and Pacas varietals.
