Posh Corps Shorts: Honduras

Lowell Powell served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Honduras. He met Mayra Orellana in the tiny village of Santa Elena. Though small and unknown, Santa Elena produces some of the highest quality coffee. In order to help make this coffee more widely available, Lowell and Mayra started an new kind of coffee business. Their company, Catracha Coffee, works with farmers to ship coffee directly to merchants in the United States, and the profits are shared with the farmers.
