La Falda, HondurasDetour Coffee Roasters
A smooth and balanced profile with a silky texture that leads to flavours of green grape, cashew and milk chocolate.
This lovely Catuai is grown in the Comayagua mountain range in Honduras on Jesus Galeas’ farm La Falda. Jesus Galeas, or “Chungo” as he is known within the community, is constantly full of energy, laughing, and talkative. His passion for coffee is clearly evident as he works as a lab assistant with Rony Gamez in Cafe Raga, becoming trained in cupping and sample roasting. In 2014, he inherited his farm from his father who, in a similar timeline to Antonio Ramirez, started production over 30 years ago in the Comayagua mountain range. He began working in coffee around the age of 19 with his father by selling their cherry to local intermediaries but found the specialty market and transitioned to controlling their own specialty processing by investing in equipment like depulpers, solar dryers and parchment storage facilities to really elevate the quality and preserve the freshness of their coffees.
