Our Story

Cafetano is a specialty coffee pioneer, rising from humble Latin roots in Honduras to a company driven by curiosity, empowerment, and the never-ending quest for the most extraordinary coffee in the world.

The Story
Begins in 2012

Our history begins in 2012 in the municipality of Güaimaca in the department of Francisco Morazán. Back in 1984, the father of our founder, coffee producer Don Miro Cuculiza, received as a gift a quintal of coffee seed of the Catüai variety from foreign indigenous people. Don Miro planted 120,000 coffee plants on these lands and thus was born what became one of the pioneer farms of Specialty Coffee in Honduras: Finca Miravalle "Cafetano's first choice".

In 2013, we were the second-place winners of the national Cup Of Excellence Cup
(COE) attaining 92.44* as the final score.

*Cupping Scores: is a process for assessing characteristics of a coffee to determine its quality. Aspects like flavor, texture, acidity, sweetness, and more are rated to give the coffee a final score between 1-100.

Our founder "Mirko Cuculiza" has been exposed to his father's vast knowledge of coffee and its aromas since he was a young man. His family's legacy, started by his father, was passed on to him to continue roasting specialty coffee, exporting, and educating others about coffee.

As a result of his strong desire for everyone to enjoy world-class coffee, the Cafetano coffee shops were born.

We’ve even sent the most qualified baristas to Rancho Mirage to further develop their already impeccable skills and to influence our business to excel to the next level.
