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 producers by helping them improve their quality, 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. The Pacas variety is a spontaneous mutation of the Bourbon variety and was discovered by the Pacas family in El Salvador (who we also buy coffee from). It is compact and highly productive.
