Saul Moises Mejia is the owner of the farm la Cascada, which is situated in the Gualme area of Corquin, Copan. Gualme is a relatively high altitude area which greater temperature swings and higher humidity, this means that the coffee has a pronounced acidity and greater complexity, but makes it a challenging environment to dry coffee. Saul benefited greatly from the centralised drying facility that we implemented this year, where the conditions are much more suited to dry coffee and so exibit the full potential of Saul's coffee. La Cascada is situated at 1450masl and is 7 hectares of mostly caturra with some lempira and IHCAFE90. The majority of picking and farm work is done by Saul's family who all live at the farm.
