We're excited to share Don Victor Honduras with you; it's our first coffee from a Direct Trade relationship with the family of Don Victor Lopez in the Copan Region of Honduras.
This is the first of several new coffees in our Return to Origin program, which is designed to ensure that our producers at origin are paid fairly. A full 20% of the retail packaged price of this coffee is returned to origin, which is a 200% increase over general coffee industry standards.
Don Victor was grown on the luscious slopes of the Copan region by Victor Lopez and was cultivated by a tight-knit community of coffee farmers.
The community behind Don Victor is interlinked through Victor's family and our valued partners, Alma Coffee. Alma Coffee was founded by 5th generation coffee farmers and owners of coffee farm and mill, Finca Terrerito. Alma Coffee provides access to a mill, U.S. roasters and fair pay for coffee farmers in the Copan region. This increase in pay allows farmers to reinvest in their community, improving both quality of life and coffee.
The extensive care and sense of community behind this coffee is palpable. Our roasting team highlights the sweet notes of strawberry, peach and caramel. Try Don Victor today, a Direct Trade coffee from one community to another.
