Background Information on COMSA Honduras
Though the climate, soil and weather conditions in Honduras are similar to many other South American countries, coffee production was slow to take off. In the 19th century there were many small coffee plantations in Honduras, but due to the lack of transportation and shipping facilities to the coast, there was virtually no exportation of coffee. Despite the country’s high poverty rates and limited resources, Honduras’s produce specialty coffee producers have pressed forward and are getting stronger every day. There are now 6 coffee producing regions in Honduras. The local farmers have boosted Honduras to rank number 5 for coffee production globally. We like to introduce you to our Honduras COMSA. This bean makes a fabulous high quality single origin cold brew and is Fair Trade. We hope you enjoy.
Our Honduras COMSA Offering
Our Honduras COMSA selection comes from the Montecillos region, which is situated at high altitudes along the Salvadoran border in southwest Honduras. The coffee cultivated in this region has gained recognition around the world. This recognition has made the Montecillos region the first Origin Denomination in Honduras: Cafe De Marcala or Denominacion De Origen Cafe De Marcala (COMSA). Honduras COMSA is sourced from a group of 641 farmers in the Marcala region. Members of COMSA and COMSA itself are an innovator in the region. Organic production and farming techniques are being taught at the new COMSA wet mill in the hopes of receiving certified organic distinction. Also, the participation of women within the organization has been significantly increased. This has led to a successful women’s group being established where homegrown organic produce is sold at a farmers market.
