Cerro Las Minas is the tallest mountain in Honduras and the pride of the department of Lempira. The mountain is home to a variety of wildlife, from pumas and other big cats to an endangered salamander. During the 1970s, the nation’s forestry department began intensely logging, dramatically reducing forest area and biodiversity. People from the nearby town of La Campa formed a grassroots campaign to stop the logging, and their work ultimately led to the 1987 creation of the Celaque National Park, 102 protected square miles in which Cerro Las Minas sits.

This coffee, from seven producers in Lempira, celebrates the people of La Campa’s courageous spirit of activism and conservation. The producers are participants in the Specialty Coffee Division (SCD), a quality-oriented sustainability program created and run by InterAmerican sister company Becamo

SCD was created in 2015 with the goal of impacting 210 coffee-producing families by ensuring their access to financing, knowledge of agricultural best practices and quality-focused procedures that can lead to higher profits and financial stability for producers. While some programs offer group training, producers in SCD receive private attention from Becamo agronomists and receive direct and personalized financing assistance.
