This is a delicious classic coffee and is especially nice roasted medium to dark.
More about the producer: There’s something brilliant brewing in Northwestern Honduras. The coffee farmers at Fairtrade certified cooperative COCAFCAL are driving benefits not just for their farmers but for the surrounding region. From coffee farming improvements to community services, the cooperative is striving to build a sustainable community.
In 1999, 55 coffee farmers turned their entrepreneurial vision into reality, setting up Cooperativa Cafetalera Capucas Limitada (COCAFCAL) to share their coffee growing knowledge with each other. Their primary export markets are the United States, Europe and Asia where both their Fairtrade coffee and their micro lot (speciality) coffee are proving popular. The cooperative has been Fairtrade certified since 2009.
In 2016, COCAFCAL received the Fairtrade Award for ‘Small Producer Organization of the Year – Latin America and the Caribbean’ for its work improving the living conditions of cooperative members and their 12 communities. The award acknowledges small-scale farmers who have excelled in production, sustained markets and met consumer demands to enhance their communities’ livelihoods. “To the people of Capucas, the Fairtrade Award shows that our hard work is being appreciated. We’re very proud of this achievement!” said Manuel Alberto, President of COCAFAL.
