About: Mr Benjamin Paz is as crazy and inquisitive as we are here at Proud Mary. He spearheads the Beneficio San Vicente operation in Pena Blanca, Honduras, and supports local producers by helping them improve quality and yields, and connecting them with direct trade buyers. Whistles, waves, head nods, “Mincho!” is yelled from the streets as he cruises through the mountainous slopes of Santa Barbara. He is a man with a big heart. This Pacas has been pulped and dried as a traditional honey, but because it is from the late harvest it is sweeter and more complex than usual.
