Panchito’s Finca is a small piece of land located nearby the Pachapa village Las Capucas area. The coffee plantation is shaded with legume and plane trees. The micro lot is managed and controlled by the capataz Francisco Villeda Panchito. Francisco produces his micro lot from only two hectares of land. With great humility and work he succeeded in affirming the high quality of his coffee despite the incident he had when he was in the army; in fact, during a fire fight he lost his left arm.
Francisco Villeda has a wonderful family managed thanks to the hard work on the plantation that has been doing for over twenty years. The collaboration with Umami Area Honduras for the social development of the local community in collaboration with the local cooperative COCAFCAL has allowed the creation the opening of the Capucas Coffee Academy where free training courses are offered to members relating to the coffee supply chain. The coffee courses follow the training program of the Coffee Skills Program of the Specialty Coffee Association. Thanks to this support, Mary Portillo, together with her personal coach Lourdes Villeda, daughter of Panchito, has become twice the Honduras’s barista champion having the possibility to participate in the World Final competition of the World Barista Championship.
