Maria's had a long relationship with coffee, eventuating with this release from her own farm - El Guayabal in El Cedral village. Her father was a coffee farmer, so she picked up knowledge as a kid, and in 2004 Maria and her husband Mario began to plant coffee on land of their own. That same year due to economic difficulty Mario had to emigrate to the United States to work as an undocumented immigrant, thankfully after five years later he returned. They've been preparing specialty coffee since 2010. Mark and Ryan had originally planned to visit Honduras this year, but had the trip cancelled due to Covid. The shipment was organised through Benjamin Paz, a friend of Seven Seeds and an extremely important member of the Honduras coffee community.. He's currently organising relief for producers and their families devastated by Hurricane Eta.
