A young mother, entrepreneur, and third generation coffee farmer, Cecilia originally trained to be a pharmacist in Honduras and spent time in the States learning English. She felt her faith call her to go into the family business of producing coffee. In the five years of managing her coffee farm, she has mastered the honey process which gives her coffee a distinctive sweet flavor.
Relationship with De La Finca:
We met Cecilia while cupping at the Denomination of Origin in Marcala in 2014. Her coffee stood out to us on the table but she was only selling to Japan until 2017 when she brought samples to our lab. We're excited to support small female producers with excellent coffee. She came with us to represent De La Finca at the SCA Expo in Boston this year.
