Finca Las Rosas
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 his daughter, Vilma, who along with her other family members continue to grow their coffee together using the same management and production techniques.
Relationship with De La Finca:
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 his niece, Vilma's, lot this year.
