Our Honduras Gea ‘Goddess of the Earth’ Coffee

In Greek mythology, Gea is the goddess of the Earth and the mother of all creation. This regional blend from the coffees of more than 400 women producers has a name that “embodies the determined spirit of women.”

Women producers — whether because a partner has passed away or migrated, or out of a pure passion for coffee — absolutely seize the opportunities that coffee presents. They rise before dawn to care for children and elders and tend to housekeeping, all before heading to the fields. Women also create opportunities and resources for one another, lend a hand during harvest, offer advice and bring notable attention to the details in their drying and milling.

They have also shown their ability to take a rough patch of land and turn it into a successful coffee farm, in part by planting timber and fruit alongside coffee crops, to increase shade and soil moisture and to encourage microclimates that bring complexity and quality to the cup.

This fully washed coffee was directly sourced from women producers in Lempira, Ocotepeque, Intibuca, Copan, La Paz, El Paraíso and Comayagua.

Honduras NKG Bloom Gea farms are at altitudes between 1,100 and 1,650 meters.  The producers use drying practices that include patios, solar dryers and raised beds.
