Kilveth is from Santa Maria del Real, Olancho where he runs his farm, Don Jesus.
Kilveth was raised in a humble home that used to work hard in the coffee business. However, they were forced to find other means of subsistence once the prices of coffee could no longer meet their basic needs. Kilveth has been the only member of the family who still relies on coffee as a means of living with dignity. Despite being quite young, his fighting spirit and his faith in God drive him to take care of his farm every day using innovative methods that are recommended to him by producers from other countries with whom he contacts through social networks.
A true sign of his progress is the consistency and potential he gets in the tests that are performed to his coffee in the laboratory, in which his samples achieve notes and attributes that stand out above the samples of his neighboring producers. Kilveth states that he does not agree with migration to other countries when we can unite our tables and thus make our efforts worthwhile as the opportunity that Bridging Tables currently offers him.
La Familia Torres, Don Felito, Don Beto, Fernando, and Angel
Manuel grew up watching his father grow coffee and developed the desire to follow in his footsteps. Along with his wife, Linda, they opened Finca La Concepcion in Marcala, Honduras as a family operation. Since 2015 he has been experimenting and gaining expertise in honey and natural processing methods. His passion, creative spirit and focus on continuous improvement are evident in this exceptional coffee.
La Familia Meza
Resting at one of the highest altitudes in Honduras, Finca Los Horcones is cultivated by Ivan Meza and his two brothers. Access to the farm is limited and the brothers bring their crop down two hours by donkey to the nearest drying facility. Until working with our friends, La Familia Banega, they had not had the opportunity to sell their coffee directly.
