耶路撒冷莊園座落於瓜西基羅(Guajiquiro)這個小城鎮，距離瑪爾卡拉幾公里外。狄奧尼西奧·克鲁兹(Dionicio Cruz)和他父親维克托·克鲁兹(Victorio Cruz)好幾年前就開始經營耶路撒冷莊園，他們種植了像是鐵皮卡、卡杜艾、波旁等品種。依據天氣狀況，會從三種傳統處理法挑選出一種處理咖啡豆 ; 通常當他們做水洗處理法時，會讓咖啡事先去果皮發酵24個小時。
ABOUT THE FARM
At the heart of Honduras, nestled in the rolling hills near the small town of Guajiquiro, lies the picturesque coffee farm "Jerusalen." For generations, the Cruz family, led by father and son duo Dionicio and Victorio, have dedicated themselves to the cultivation and production of some of the finest Honduran Coffee.
Utilizing a range of exceptional coffee varieties such as typica, catuai, and bourbon, the Cruz family is constantly experimenting with the different methods of processing to achieve the perfect balance of flavor and aroma. Whether it's the traditional natural, washed or honey process, the Cruz's are committed to using only the finest organic fertilizers to enhance the taste of their Honduran Coffee beans.
WHO’S THE FARMER
At the heart of "Farm Jerusalen" lies a deep passion for Honduran Coffee, passed down through generations. As a third-generation farmer, I grew up immersed in the world of agriculture, and have always been driven by a love of hard work. Though my family and I have dabbled in a variety of crops, my focus has always been on coffee production. Over the years, we've experimented with different processing techniques, perfecting our craft and earning recognition in the form of high cupping scores. Today, our delicious Honduran coffees can be found on the tables of coffee lovers in countries like Taiwan and Japan.
My passion for coffee runs deep in my roots, as a third-generation farmer, I've dedicated my life to cultivating and perfecting the art of producing high-quality Honduran Coffee. My dream is to continue to push the boundaries and gain knowledge in fermented coffee processing, as well as expand our operations to include more solar dryers on our farm. My ultimate goal is to showcase the excellence of our coffee and make a name for myself as one of the top Honduran coffee farmers in the industry.
We make our best effort in order to obtain high quality coffee. I’ll like to meet Taiwanese roasters one day and be able to share my experience and thoughts with them.
