Owned by Porfilio Lopez, El Cachimbon has 17 hectares, 15 of which are cultivated. San Andreas is a small municipality within the state of Lempira, with a population of 15,000 people primarily involved in the cultivation of coffee. This farm is part of a five-year sustainability program designed to increase crop yield and coffee quality at the producer level. His farm sits between 1,600 and 1,675 meters above sea level, growing lempira and Ihcafe90. Sr. Lopez, who goes by Lito, is a gregarious person and brings his entire family with him when hosting tours. Lopez processes his own coffee after picking only red ripe cherries, and pays particular attention to the washing, fermentation and drying of their coffees to create exceptional coffee. The coffees are floated for quality and then sun dried. At the height of harvest Lito hires up to 50 pickers to keep up with production. Because of his standing in the community he is able to hire the same people each year, which aids in quality improvement.
