Finca El Misterio


Finca El Misterio is located in the central Honduran municipality El Playon, Comayagua.  It is a relatively new coffee farm in the area and one of the few in Honduras to produce Typica, Pacamara, and Yellow Catuai.  This farm was the winner of a local Taste of Harvest competition this past April.  The high altitude of this farm helps slow the growth of the cherry, a contributing factor to high-density specialty coffee beans. It is surrounded by volcanic rocks that make a fertile soil for yellow catuai coffee trees to thrive.
