Background Details

This coffee is sourced from family-owned farms organized around Cooperativa Capucas Limitada (COCAFCAL), founded in 1999, is an association of 70 farming families located in the community of Capucas, within the department of Copan, Honduras. COCAFCAL boasts a state of the art coffee processing facility complete with a modern cupping laboratory.  The commitment to detail in coffee production is matched with a commitment to impact quality of life. Social programs include a virtual library where community members can access knowledge from the internet, and partnerships to bring regular access to dental care and youth athletic programs to the community. COCAFCAL also strives to support diversified revenue sources in Capucas through a honey production program and a women's group called Flor del Campo that roasts and sells high quality coffee for national consumption. To showcase their efforts, COCAFCAL has an annual coffee competition called Te Van a Conocer Compa ("You're going to get to know us, friend") where the international coffee community is invited to sample the best coffees in the region and enjoy a bit of eco-tourism.
