The Madrid family is steeped in coffee growing excellence. Not only is Franklin joined by his father and brother coffee farming in the El Sauce region but his son, Denilson, is a formidable up-and-comer to the trade.
Finca La Patepluma sits high in the fog-shrouded region of El Sauce in the greater Santa Barbara region of Southern Honduras. Only several years old, La Patepluma’s well-kept red and yellow catuai trees are still short but full of promise for harvests to come.
After depulping, coffee seeds undergo a dry fermentation before a short soaking to remove excess mucilage.
The Madrid family is dedicated to growing their specialty production alongside of Verve and has this year invested in an immaculate new solar dryer to accommodate the production of their El Sauce farms.
We believe the coffee experience is our responsibility from seed to cup. Coffee is our craft, our ritual, our passion. It drives us and inspires us. With this simple truth and responsibility we are bridging the gap from farmlevel to streetlevel.
