Don Fabio Caballero is a well-known coffee producer in Honduras. When it comes to coffee production and is a great advisor, able to answer all questions and queries about coffee. He has also developed his own fertiliser which he applies to the small plants at the nursery and flowering plants at the farm. Don Fabio compares them to pregnant mums and newborn babies and believes these are the two stages when coffee plants need the most help to develop strong coffee cherries and continue to thrive after harvest. Mogola was the first farm Don Fabio purchased back in 1970, which was the same year he got married. The farm looks like a botanic garden, with many lines of trees to separate lots from the wind. Flowers grow to attract butterflies and act as landmarks for the workers when picking different lots. The area is very humid and cold, which helps maintain moisture in the soil and reduces stress on the plants often seen in hotter temperatures. This climate also promotes slow maturation, resulting in the development of complexity and intense flavours in the coffees. Roaster's Thoughts Marysabel, Don Fabio’s daughter, and her husband, Moises, help to manage the farms. They have entered their lots to competitions multiple times and in 2016 they won 1st place on Cup of Excellence with a record price of USD$120.50/lb. This coffee has already proven itself entering and winning many times. This coffee none the less is one of high quality, with distinct notes of red apples, strawberries and stone fruit.
