COFFEE SCORE: 85
El Congolon is a mountain range located in the department of Lempira, Honduras; a region declared National Patrimony of Honduras by the National Congress in 2010. This region is historically important for Honduras, as it was under the domain of Cacique Lempira, the first defender of national sovereignty, who fought battles against Spanish conquerors in this mountain range were fought.
Coffee production in El Congolon grows 1,500 to 2,000 meters above sea level. It's one of the highest hills in Honduras, and from there, you can see municipalities of El Salvador, El Golfo de Fonseca, and other areas surrounding Lempira.
Fun Fact! The idea to name this lot "El Congolon" was born during our team's visit to Honduras in March, and the Bicafe and Sustainable Harvest teams agreed to make it an exclusive coffee for us.
