Santa Barbara is an idyllic micro-producer region for coffee. There is a concentration of many small producers that grow coffee in micro-lots for the purpose of being connected with quality-focused roasters. We build relationships, through quality, with Belarmino and other Honduras producers.

The passion that Belarmino has for coffee is thanks to his parents, motivating him to start producing specialty coffee seven years ago. Since then, he has been investing tremendous amounts of effort to consistently produce high-quality coffee. The Pacas and Parainema trees on Finca Genesis are grown under shade which helps with temperature control and sun exposure. Belarmino Contreras takes care of the trees that he uses as shade almost as much as he takes care of his coffee trees. His coffee trees are healthy and productive thanks to his good practices. Berlamino’s brothers have been helping him on the farm. For the 2018/2019 harvest, Belarmino will have one more hectare under production as he has been able to expand his farm.
