Francis Arturo Romero is the owner of the farm San Isidro III, which is located at 1200masl in the Colque area of Corquin, Copan. Francis has a small amount of Catuai, but the majority of the 5 and a half hectares of land is planted with Lempira and IHCAFE90.
All the processing for the ML’s takes place at the Aruco mill to centralise and have greater control over the process to create consistent procedures but also to reduce the risk on the producer. The mill is also at 800masl which gives a drier more stable climate to dry the coffee compared to up at the farms where the weather can be less predictable. This coffee was floated and cleaned and then taken to the beds where it is dried for between 20 -30 days weather depending where it is turned hourly.
