Finca El Puente is located in Chinacla in the La Paz Department, close to the famous Markala coffee region. Although not among the rich municipalities, Chinakla is famous for its good coffee from different Arabica varietals. Finca El Puente (in Spanish it translates as «the bridge») is the family project of Marysabel Caballero and Moises Herrera. They have been married since 1996 and have been cultivating coffee together ever since.
High altitude, cold nights, volcanic soil and high humidity produced by the nearby mountains, Coordillera de Merendon provide exceptional growing conditions for coffee.
Working together and building on traditions has helped Marysabel and Moises win the biggest prize – first place in the Honduras Cup of Excellence in 2016.
