Blanca Rosa Melgar is the owner of 6 hectares of coffee in the Celaque area of Corquin, Copan. Blanca manages the farm with her husband, Arturo, and the couple have lived there since the 1970s. The farm is and has always been organic and Blanca and Arturo refused to apply any chemicals to the land. Amongst the coffee they grow several varieties of banana, orange, lemon and lime, guava and whole array of native vegetables.

Blancas sons Osman and Francis both work in the cooperative and have been part of the micro-lot project since the start. As they have seen huge increases in their household income, Blanca decided to produce as many micro-lots as possible.

Given the altitude and the varieties they grow, it was decided that naturals would best suit the profile of the farm and they have had great success elevating the cup quality with processing. This is the third year that Blanca has produced micro lots through the cooperative who know have 38 members in the micro lot program that has grown from just 4 in the past 4 years.
