    Victor Contreras is a leader and one of the loudest voices in organic and biodynamic coffee production in Marcala, southern Honduras. To say Victor is passionate about biodynamic and organic farming would be an understatement – Victor is absolutely obsessive about learning, refining and improving his biodynamic farming practices and producing the healthiest and most vibrant coffee possible.

    ​​Victor and his brother Edwin have run their farm Finca El Viejo Roble (“the old oak”) for over 25 years, since they inherited the land from their parents. Located in the suburb of El Granadillo outside Marcala town proper, El Viejo Roble is at 1,650 meters and ideally situated for quality coffee growing.

    This lot is a stunning washed process Gesha whose seeds Victor sourced from Panama, and has cultivated at El Viejo Roble for almost a decade. We are pleased to feature this lot as one of best Honduran coffees we have tasted this season.
