Marysabel Caballero and Moises Herrera
As a fourth generation coffee farmer, Marysabel Caballero’s bond with coffee is intimately connected to her history; coffee cultivation in her family dates back to 1907. Moises Herrera came into coffee as an employee of a Guatemalan coffee exporter. On a visit to Honduras in 1992 he saw an area with ideal conditions to produce high quality coffee. They were married in 1996 and together they began planting and cultivating coffee.
Chinacla looks very different from most places we visit. The interesting blend of coniferous and broad-leaved trees creates a unique landscape that can remind one of the Pacific Northwest.
This micro lot comes from the Puente's farm, El Pino, which was the first place they ever started growing the gesha variety. Moisés and Marysabel are constantly innovating, and the decision to begin experimenting with natural process coffees is just one example. The ripe red fruit is picked and laid out to dry slowly on the raised beds that surround their home in Marcala.
