The San Isidro estate is located in the lush mountains in southern Copan Ruinas, Honduras. The Duke family has been producing eco-friendly, sustainable coffee on their bio-diverse estate since 1975 when Señor Adan Duke established the farm. Ideal growing conditions, including rich soil, tropical climate, and high altitude allow the Duke family to grow premium specialty coffee alongside a diverse ecosystem of thriving flora and fauna.
Katia Duke is a fourth generation coffee farmer who began her coffee career opening a cafe in the town of Copán Ruinas, called Cafe Ixchel, named for the Mayan moon goddess. Eager to have complete control over coffee quality from start to finish, Katia secured 68 hectares from her father's estate and began honing her skills as a coffee producer. Her work and dedication to quality has led to the production of highly desirable coffees of various different processing methods.
The honey process from San Isidro is soft and sweet, with a warm, floral finish.
