A Standout Honduran Coffee from Miriam Perez

Each year, the coffee producer cooperative COMSA in Marcala, Honduras meticulously organizes a premium lot program to showcase their individual farmers. These lots are limited, experimental and unique. Miriam Perez’s  Honey processed lot from her farm, “Clave de Sol”, is our first release from this program for 2022.

Miriam “Betty” Perez is a third generation coffee farmer who has been producing coffee for over 20 years. Her 3.5 hectare farm sits at 1300 meters, where she grows roughly 11,000lbs of  coffee annually.  She is a local leader in the Marcala community and within the COMSA organization. She has also become an outspoken advocate of gender equality and fair trade in the coffee industry. “When we were kids, our grandfather always involved all of his grandsons in farm chores at his coffee farm. He didn’t like bringing his grand-daughters because he used to say girls had no place in coffee farms. In the end, he wound up contradicting his own beliefs by inheriting his daughter, my mother, her farm, and delegating tasks to me. I helped by planting trees, hauling and picking coffee, helping my mother, who was a single mother, earn a living for us in order to buy school materials and clothing. Today, I remain an organic coffee producer. Our vision is to have coffee production be the inheritance of our four children, and to instill on them the same vision and values of cultivating coffee in harmony with nature.”

The Bottom Line

Miriam’s current offering from Finca Clave de Sol deep in the Honduras coffee lands is a balanced, full bodied micro-lot which tastes of brown sugar, apricot and vanilla. This Amavida Coffee Roasters Trekker Series coffee  hints at the flavors of fall just ahead of us.  We hope you’ll enjoy and share it!
