This was produced by Edgar Carrillo himself on his farm "La Torre." A pine forest and tropical climate surround La Torre. It is located close to the border with El Salvador and close to a control tower of the Honduran army that was used in 1969 during the Cold War to prevent the invasion by the Salvadoran army into Honduran territory. That is why the name La Torre was given to the farm. 


With the help of Sustainable Harvest, Edgar has significantly improved the quality of his coffee through intensive Q Processing training. Currently, Edgar is renewing his farm with more resilient coffee varieties.

About the producer

Pacayal Coffee was born out of the resilience of Honduran farmers who refused to give up on coffee production in the face of the Roya outbreak of 2013. While their fellow farmers considered emigrating to the United States in search of the American Dream, Edgar and Karen Carillo realized they had great coffee and could start a business that would earn quality-driven farmers a better price through direct market access. In 2014 they founded Pacayal Coffee, which has since grown to 134 members, 54 of whom are women.

The motto of the organization is “quality does not suffer the crisis,” speaking to the dedication of Pacayal Coffee to producing exceptional coffee and improving the livelihoods of farmers.

Pacayal Coffee invests in several initiatives for producers, including best agricultural practices training to prevent Roya, economic empowerment programs for women, sustainable production practices training, and quality research to develop award-winning coffees. In 2017, the farm Las Flores, owned by producer Natalia Pineda, produced a coffee that placed fourth in the Honduras Cup of Excellence.
