About the farm-
Positioned 1,510 meters above sea level in the mountainous area of San Jose, 20 km from Marcala, Finca Liquidambar sit in one of the distinguished specialty coffees producing regions. For more than one century, the farm has been cultivated by the González – Carrillo family. Finca Liquidambar is the family’s heritage, a legacy of profitable and sustainable organic farming, generating produce shaped by quality and ecological balance.
The estate was founded in the late 19th century, when the parents of Ubaldo González acquired a plot of land near the village of San Jose and began planting coffee. Moving from a subsistence to commercial crop at the beginning of the 20th century, German immigrants largely encouraged this shift in the coffee sector in Marcala and neighboring regions by educating farmers in selection of the best quality cherries and processing techniques. Because of these factors the González-Carrillos and many other families over the region consider coffee as a currency that unites people, creating an entire industry and allowing millions of families to live, produce and process some of the best coffee in the world.
El Liquidámbar is located in one of the most important regions of Honduras: the mountain range of Montecillo. Coffee’s from this region have a fruity and sweet scent, lively and bright acidity and velvety body with a notes of orange and peach, creating a vibrant drink. The quality of the coffee is a direct result of the combination of geographic diversity and the meticulous work of the family, from work on the estate through to the processing, drying and delivering of the coffee for export.
