Honduras Intibuca Majestic SHG EP is sourced from 12 family-owned farms organized around Cooperativa Agropecuaria Regional Nuevo Edén Limitada (COARENE), a cooperative located in the municipality of San Juan within the department of Intibucá, Honduras. COARENE supports producers who have small parcels of land for coffee cultivation. COARENE 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 livelihoods for members of COARENE.
