LEECHER-Honduras Miraflores, Honey Process
Juan Contreras is a second generation coffee producer and he has experienced coffee on every level. He started focusing on specialty coffee in 2015 when he began learning more about coffee processing and understanding coffee tasting. The name Finca Miraflores comes simply from the name of the village it is located in. It is surrounded by high mountains and beautiful views of the Montaña Santa Barbara National Park. This is where Juan grew up and worked hard in coffee since a very young age.
The cherries collected are de-pulped every afternoon, then the parchment is put into fermentation tanks where it is dry fermented for 16 hours. After, the parchment is rinsed into the tank with a lot of water four times. Finally, the parchment is sorted by hand to remove defective beans while inside the parabolic solar dryer for 22 days.
