This is a washed coffee produced by Oscar Omar Alonzo on his famous farm, Finca Cual Bicicleta (“Which Bicycle?” Farm). It is a small lot of Lempira and IHCAFE90 varieties, harvested in February/March 2017 and grown at around 1450 MASL.
Oscar is a community leader in a rural area called Chinacla, just outside of the town of Marcala in southwestern Honduras. His organic yields are among the highest in the world thanks to his ingenuity and industriousness. His lives by the philosophy of Californeo, a saint he has invented who grants miracles to those who work hard and use their brain to solve problems (really).
Oscar has been very involved in the development of Chinacla, taking the lead in projects ranging from organizing the community to clear roads in order to bring electricity into the area to his current project, building a school on his farm for the children from families who cannot afford to attend.
Cual Bicicleta literally translates to “Which Bicycle?” but it is a local expression that people use when faced with adversity that means something to the effect of “whatever, let’s just do it!”
