Background Details

Honduras Cooperativa Tecauxinas SHG EP Grainpro is sourced from 36 family-owned farms organized around Cooperativa Cafetalera Tecauxinas Limitada (COCATECAL), which was established in 2008. Members of COCATECAL live within the municipality of La Campa in the department of Lempira, Honduras. COCATECAL is currently building a cupping lab and a facility to produce organic fertilizer for producers. COCATECAL also provides scholarships for producers' children. COCATECAL collaborates with an export company called BICAFE, which operates a warehouse and dry-mill in Santa Rosa de Copan. Weather conditions in Santa Rosa are ideal for storing parchment and the dry-mill is specifically designed for sorting high quality micro-lots. The partnership has helped to improve quality, increase earnings from coffee sales, and strengthen the family’s livelihood.
