Cup of Excellence
My name is Duvis Alexis Moreno the name of the farm Las Tres Peñas al 1600 meters, in Las Vegas, Santa Barbara. He moved to San Pedro Sula for about 4 years to look for opportunities, then he had some family problems and decided to leave the country and travel to the United States. He was there for two years and returned to Honduras because it is hard to live without his family. He felt the support of his father all the time, His father has been working with coffee for a long time, that way he knew what Cup of Excellence was, because both his father and his brother participated in, they invited and motivated Duvis to plant coffee. He started planting and so far it has been good, the coffee farm gives the producer family enough to live on. That was how he started working in coffee.
He currently grows the Pacas variety and generates employment for his family permanently and 3 people during temporary periods when additional work has to be done.
