Description

This wildly complex Parainema varietal coffee comes from Eulogio Martinez and his farm Los Yoyos in the famed Santa Barbera region of Honduras. The sparkling acidity, fruited sweetness, and structured body are a wonderful illustration of what this region has to offer.







Background

Eulogio comes from a lineage of coffee
producers – his grandfather and father were
farmers. In the 1970s, his parents lost all
their coffee plants to a rust attack. Yoyo (as
he is more commonly known) was obviously
discouraged from coffee farming seeing what
his family had gone through, but fortunately
was given the opportunity to work for a non-
family coffee farmer who was very successful
and taught him that it can be an economically sustainable crop.

Yoyo bought his farm in 1990 and from the beginning he was determined to make a better life for himself and own his family than his family had been able to accomplish through coffee farming. He loves the crop itself, he loves the taste of good quality coffee, and enjoys meeting coffee roasters and the fact that his lots are constantly entering new markets of coffee drinkers. While his biggest challenges are shortages in labour and C-market volatility, he remains resolute in continuing to develop on what he’s accomplished in his career as a coffee producer, to continue providing his family with a good life and the future generations within his family the best opportunities to make good lives for themselves through coffee. His hard work at persistence has paid off in many ways, not least of which includes his winning the top spot at Cup of Excellence 2015.
