Manuel Pereira is a second-generation coffee producer in Marcala, Honduras. In his youth, Manuel frequently visited different coffee farms where his dad worked, and eventually fell in love with the process of producing coffee. Eventually, Manuel and his wife Linda began Finca La Concepción, their own coffee farm. Over the years Manuel has continued to experiment in his processing, including not only washed lots but honey and dry-processed experimental lots as well. A few years ago, De La Finca founder Nelson Amador met Manuel Pereira and the two discussed De La Finca’s goals to add value to every member in the supply chain, from the producers all the way to roasters. The result has been a flowering relationship between De La Finca and Finca La Concepción which has led to improved quality and premiums paid back to Manuel and Linda. We’ve purchased a limited quantity of Manuel’s honey-processed lot. We really loved the sweet honey flavors paired with a bright yellow plum tone that’s really refreshing. This coffee reminds us of late-night summertime bonfires with your best friends, smores in hand, and nothing but the best vibes.
