This coffee comes to us from COMSA. In the year 2000, 62 Honduran coffee farmers joined together with a common goal to transform their farms from conventional to organic production and formed COMSA (Cafe Organico Marcala, S.A). COMSA uses the Fair Trade price premium to fund many social projects including paying teachers’ salaries and purchasing school supplies. The premium also finances the construction of kitchens in the schools in support of the Merienda Escolar program that provides meals for school children.
This is a naturally processed lot, with the coffee cherry being left on the seed for drying. This requires meticulous care with raking coffee beans while they dry on the patio, facilitating even drying, resulting in consistent flavor throughout the lot.
