We are very excited to add Honduras to our single origin coffee selections for the first time! Our new Honduras Marcala Comsa coffee is Fair Trade certified and is characterized by a medium body with a smooth mouthfeel and subtle honeydew melon notes. This delicious varietal is arriving just in time for sunny mornings on the patio.
The COMSA coffee production strives for consistent, quality coffee beans, while also prioritizing a lifestyle that promotes economic stability and growth opportunities for the farmers themselves. This coffee society also produces their beans through sustainable practices.
COSMA coffee producers are located in Marcala, La Paz, Honduras and were founded in 2001 with the initiative of the Foundation for Rural Enterprise Development (FUNDER). Over the years FUNDER slowly facilitated the growers themselves to own shares of the coffee operation, encouraging the community of small farmers to strive for the highest quality product by assuming entire responsibility for the success of their crops. Allowing the small farmers to own shares of the coffee productions is imperative to the philosophy of promoting “the full transformation of people” and economic well being of the farmers themselves. The farmers are compensated directly for their exports, a practice that is not seen enough throughout the coffee industry.
