It’s in his blood. Olvin was gradually introduced to the responsibilities of farming by his father. Starting with small weeding tasks as a kid, he was gifted a small parcel of land at sixteen. Now with 3.6Ha of land, blessed with an ideal climate, Olvin’s farm, Finca Mi Paz, means ‘my peace.’ He radiates positivity and enthusiasm for specialty coffee, competing in the Honduran Cup of Excellence since 2007.

At purchase we determined a sustainable, profitable price for the growing longevity of the producer. Below, we’ve listed the FOB (Freight on Board) price that we paid to Caravela, and within that, the Farmgate price - what Olvin directly earned for his coffee as parchment. On top of FOB, we then pay to ship the coffee to Melbourne, quality assess, roast (resulting in a 15% weight loss), & retail it, adding significant costs & risk. You can read more about the way we source coffee via our website.
