by Nelson Ramirez, Santa Barbara, Honduras
Nelson Ramirez bought this farm just a few years ago and named it after his grandmother Chely. Maybe that's why he's worked so hard to make it a state-of-the-art example of good coffee farming and processing. Nelson is an agronomist by training and thus he understands the ins and outs of coffee farming very well. He's also quite a geek when it comes to processing his cherries properly - that's one of the reasons why this coffee tastes so great. The Santa Barbara region has in recent years become the epicenter of the new wave of coffee ￼￼￼￼￼greatness in Honduras. Nelson is a hard working member of the community of ambitious farmers that have made this region famous. Now we are proud to have established a sustainable relationship with him and his coffee.
