Honduras is a country that is struggling to rise out of its reputation as the murder capital of the world. Coffee is a ray of shining light, and the coffee is pretty amazing. We are proud to partner with two cooperatives that are doing life-changing work on the ground in their communities. Our relationship with Capucas and Cocafelol goes back 5 years, and we have witnessed the life-changing transformation coffee has brought to these communities. Food security, education, and medical clinics just scratch the surface of how these co-ops provide basic needs as well as pride and dignity to their members. In fact, two of the coffees in the box collection are from female producers.
The three coffees represented in this box collection are all award winning coffees from cupping competitions we attended. They bring a range of flavor profiles to the table and are an excellent representation of the coffee Honduras is producing. We are thrilled to offer them as a gift set.
Alfredo Paz: vanilla, lemon balm, creamy
Norma Lara: honey, caramel, peach, clean
Ana Mercedes: nougat, caramel, chocolate
About Our Coffee
Certified organic coffee is produced according to sustainable practices, without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or other harmful agrochemicals. In order for a coffee to be certified organic, the farm must undergo evaluation from an independent certifying agency. The U.S. has its own organic standards, requiring a roasting facility to be annually inspected and certified in order to be labeled ’organic.’
Fair Trade USA enables sustainable development and community empowerment by cultivating a more equitable global trade model that benefits farmers, workers, consumers, industry and the earth. We achieve our mission by certifying and promoting Fair Trade products.
A traditional farming method in which coffee trees are grown alongside other crops under a canopy of taller trees. The mixture of vegetation prevents erosion and protects the coffee from harsh weather. Shade grown farms also provide vital wildlife habitat.
