"Nueva Allianza" is small producer blend from the village of Concepcion del Horno, located in the Department of Comayagua. Most families are farming a few hectares of coffee, and the altitude ranges from between 1550 and 1650 meters above sea level - relatively hight for Honduras. This area was deeply affected by a leaf rust epidemic in 2011, many farmers losing entire crops and having to completely start over.
