Finca Las Cascadas
FREDY DAGOBERTO CALIX
In 2000, brothers George and Walter Calix began planting coffee for the first time in a remote area, Las Breas Cabañas. Little by little, they began growing their farm to what it is today. When George tragically passed away in 2011, the land was distributed to his children, including Fredy. Fredy’s lot placed 10th in the Cup of Excellence competition in Honduras this year.
Relationship with De La Finca:
This family’s coffee was originally brought into our lab in Honduras by a coffee middleman. We fell in love with this exceptional coffee but did not want to buy it without working directly with the producer. Toward the end of the harvest, Walter himself came in to our lab to have samples evaluated. We recognized the coffee immediately and were able to develop a relationship with this family of producers directly, purchasing lots from both Fredy and Vilma (Las Rosas) this year.
