Our Honduras Organic COMSA SHG EP is sourced from Cafe Organico Marcala, S.A. (COMSA).  The association includes 641 coffee farmers located in the Marcala region within the department of La Paz, Honduras.  This is a protected designation of origin (Denominacion De Origen Cafe De Marcala).  COMSA boasts a demonstration farm where innovations in organic farming are perfected and then taught to farmers in the association.  They have also recently renovated their wet mill and have significantly increased the participation of women within the organization.  The women’s group has been quite successful and have even established their own farmers’ market for selling home-grown organic produce.

Coffees from the association are grown at 1300 – 1700 meters in clay mineral soil.  For processing they fully wash and dry the beans in the sun or with mechanical driers.  This crop is also Certified Organic.  The coffee has a nice aroma with hints of fruit and caramel.  In the cup it has a creamy body with notes of caramel, toffee, green apple and chocolate.
