From Tyler, owner of Five and Hoek:
Blas is back! This is our third year carrying coffee produced by Jose Blas from Santa Elena, Honduras, the home of Catracha Coffee. Catracha exists to empower coffee producers and their families in Santa Elena. Mayra Powell runs this amazing organization and introduced us to Blas when I visited in January 2018.
About producing coffee Blas said, “I like farming coffee. I like being outside, I love working with my family and that I am able to export my coffee internationally and it inspires me to produce high quality coffee."
