The Don Amado farm is operated by Sandra Trochez and her family in Las Flores, Santa Barbara. Sandra's late husband, Amado, comes from a long line of coffee producers and from a young age worked on his parent’s farm alongside his father until 2006 when part of the farm was given to him and Sandra to start their own farm - Don Amado. The farm rose to prominence in 2010 when it won the Cup of Excellence for Honduras. Since Amado sadly passed away in 2019, Sandra has continued his legacy of producing exceptional coffee with their two children and Amado's brothers.
Situated beside the Santa Barbara Mountain National Park, the Las Flores region is 1,650m above sea level and enjoys consistent rainfall and cooler-than-average temperatures compared to other Honduras regions. This unique climate shelters coffee trees from direct sun, resulting in slower maturation of cherries. This helps creates a taste profile high in refinement and complexity.
Harvest season happens between December – June, using meticulous hand-picking methods. The cherries are carefully de- pulped, and the parchment is dry fermented at 16-20°C for 15 hours. The fermented parchment is then thoroughly washed five times and laid out in parabolic solar dryers for around two weeks or until the moisture content is between 9-10%. Sandra and her family then hand sort the dried beans to ensure any defects are removed.
