The new Spirit Animal Coffee in San Pedro Sula, Honduras is on a mission to support the local community through its coffee beans and social enterprise.

Our premium coffees have gained traction on the international specialty coffee scene. We felt that our own Honduran compatriots should also have the chance to experience them.

— Kathya Irías, President and Founder of Spirit Animal Coffee

SAN PEDRO SULA, HONDURAS, January 22, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — In just over a year since launching their brand today Spirit Animal Cafe opened its new flagship store in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. The new location is located in the desirable area around the Hyatt Place hotel. It will offer premium espresso drinks made from beans grown by local organic farms.

The flagship store will also feature pastries made by local bakeries, signature dishes by famous local chefs, and coffee novelties such as low-acid cold brew and nitro coffee. In addition, the new location will offer private rooms for corporate events as well as a very convenient drive-through service.

“Our premium coffee beans have already started to gain traction in the international specialty coffee scene. But we felt it was a big discrepancy that our own people, our fellow Hondurans, didn’t have the chance to experience the best our coffee growers have to offer. This was a bold move as we are considered a “white crow” in the specialty coffee scene as few brands buy and sell locally. But it fit perfectly with our motto, “You’re only limited by the things you don’t do,” says President and Founder Kathya Irías.

Spirit Animal was founded with a mission to promote sustainable coffee culture and provide shade-grown organic Honduran specialty coffee to consumers around the world. These coffees are responsibly sourced from family farms that prioritize environmental conservation, fair labor and quality products. Their commitment to sustainability extends beyond the coffee itself. They also work to promote responsible agricultural practices, support sustainable community initiatives, and educate about the importance of growing coffee.

With this in mind, the new site will also serve as the company’s primary training ground for all employees, where they can learn about coffee growing, roasting, brewing techniques and meet the farmers who have grown the Coffee.
