Introducing our family coffee, Santa Lucía from Honduras, the epitome of tradition, quality, family heritage, and social responsibility. Nelson Amador, the owner of Five Star, grew up on his grandfather's coffee farm, Finca Santa Lucía, in the highlands of Tres Pinos, Comayagua, Honduras. This farm has been in our family for more than 80 years and is still currently managed by Nelson's grandfather, Raul Rodriguez. It is renowned for its expertly grown Bourbon and Lempira varieties, yielding a delicious bean that roasts well both medium and dark with exceptional versatility and taste.

As a coffee roaster, we take pride in our unique connection to the land and the people who cultivate the coffee we serve. Our Santa Lucía coffee is not only a celebration of the heritage and passion of our family, passed down from generation to generation, but it is also a commitment to sustainability and social responsibility. This coffee is certified Organic and Bird Friendly, ensuring that it is grown with care for the environment and the creatures that call it home.

In addition to being environmentally responsible, we also believe in giving back to the communities where our coffee is grown. That's why a portion of the proceeds from every bag of Santa Lucía coffee goes toward our partnership with Educate2Envision, a non-profit organization that supports schools and education projects in rural coffee growing regions where kids would otherwise not have access to education. With every cup of Santa Lucía, you can enjoy great coffee while also making a difference in the lives of those in need.

This coffee is not only a testament to the family's expertise and passion for coffee, but it has also been recognized by the industry. In 2022, Santa Lucía won a bronze medal at the prestigious Golden Bean North America coffee roasting competition in the milk drink category, solidifying its position as a top-quality coffee.

Experience the richness and complexity of this medium dark roast, with its smooth and well-balanced flavors. Whether you enjoy it black or with cream, Santa Lucía is sure to become your new favorite coffee. And with its status as the highest selling coffee in both our importing and roasting businesses, you can trust that you're getting the best of the best with every cup.

Join us in celebrating the heritage of our family, the tradition of excellence in coffee, and our commitment to sustainability and social responsibility with every cup of Santa Lucía.
