Honduras, Celso Galeas "La Granadilla"


Product Description

Celso Galeas started producing coffee in 1989, with 800 coffee plants, in a plot that his father gave him. At that time, he did not know how important the final product was. He had a breakthrough by becoming a member of COMSA, which allowed him to become aware of what coffee farming represents and what it also entails. As time went on, his children grew older and now his daughter has already finished her studies and is the one who helps him in the administration of the farm. It’s important for him that his family views the coffee production as family heritage, so that they can continue producing specialty coffee for generations. Celso states that, “In our plot we have implemented good practices throughout the coffee process, the people who help us in the harvest are prepared to only cut the coffee at its exact point of maturation. In the process of de-pulping and drying we do it with extreme care to avoid damaging the coffee.”
