Redemption Road Coffee is proud to partner with Sean Warner to bring you Honduran coffee from Finca Los Cerrato. Sean and his wife moved to Honduras to partner with a local church to help send kids to school. In an effort to support their lives as missionaries, Sean began to work to connect coffee producers to roasters interested in excellent Honduran coffee. In partnership with Honduras Coffee Alliance, Sean was able to connect RRC to the sweet and delicious coffee of Carlos Cerrato.
Carlos worked for many years as a salesman traveling all over Honduras. After meeting producers in northern Honduras, he started talking with several friends from his hometown, Santa Lucia (5,000, ft), about the idea of producing coffee. Exhausted by the constant travel, he and his colleagues began to save and work towards their vision. In 2012, Cooperative Portal El Eden started with 9 producers purchasing about 5 Acres.
Carlos has come to love the entire process of cultivating coffee. He says his favorite time of year is just after the first rains when the farm becomes bright green and he works to ensure a farm full of healthy coffee trees by applying natural fertilizers. Carlos is working towards growing his farm and continuing to improve the quality of his coffee. He is starting to plant other varieties of coffee and is very excited to grow a coffee farm known for quality.
