Jesus Humberto Estevez is the owner of 1.5 hectares of coffee near to the town of Corquin in Copan. Jesus grows mostly caturra with a small area of villa sarchi and has more recently started planting parainema. Jesus also has bee hives for honey, fruit trees and vegetables for his own consumption.
Due to the altitude and variety that Jesus grows, he has been processing all of his coffee as washed lots, since the cup is very complex and usually high quality. This year he has started experimenting with honeys and naturals, all processed by the team at aruco. This is the first result of those experiments, which have given an extra layer of complexity and fruitiness to this lempira variety.
