Finally arrived!!!

August 1, 2006

The Honduran Finca Las Canas has finally arrived after many delays.
We brought up the entire crop of 88 bags form this fresh new plantation.
What an odd thing to say isn’t it? It is a fresh new plantation because it was young when Hurricane Mitch destroyed everything, immediately afterwards many new plants were planted. This year is the first full mature year this small estate yields a fully developed balanced fruit. I had the chance to visit in March of this year and wrote about it in roast. The article is titled From one Grower to Another

Carlos Maradiaga, owner of Finca Las Canas is manually cranking out beans on the wetmill version 2.0

    I forgot to mention that what Carlos is cranking with his hand normally has a belt that runs to a small motor that is not much bigger than a push mower.
