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 Parainema variety is becoming more common in Honduras due to its resistance to pests and diseases. Benjamin’s Parainema is processed via the natural method creating an interesting and unique flavour profile.
