Dely Suyapa Matute is quite a remarkable lady, she is the mother of six and grew up herself picking coffee with her father. She tells us she always dreamed of having her own farm, but this was not a simple achievement.
Her husband moved to the US in order to earn money for the family, while she remained in Honduras looking after their children. It was this that allowed them to buy a small farm. While Dely had been awaiting her husband’s return she had also put herself to work growing seedlings, and managed to grow 10,000.
In 2014 working together, she and her husband managed to place 4th in the COE.
Dely says she loves producing coffee because the whole family can be involved.
