Featured Coffee: Honduras
We have amazing Centrals!
Our first Central American coffees to arrive in the warehouses come from Honduras. This is our second year working with the phenomenal cooperative COMSA in Honduras, and we are thrilled with the FTO SMBC Marcala offering this year. The cooperative is located in La Paz and has a multi-faced approach to poverty reduction and sustainable development. COMSA supports a community bank offering loans to community members, a Gender Equality Board, a bilingual international school, and a technical farm program, all while encouraging training, creativity, and sustainability with their fully holistic approach to organic agriculture.
The coffee has a bright acidity with a creamy mouthfeel and mild floral notes. There’s a lingering brown sugar aftertaste, and the coffee is consistent and sweet. Get in touch with us to try it for yourself!
To find out more about the coffee providing a positive impact to our partner group, COMSA cooperative, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 360-573-4433.
