Organic Honduras Santa Rosa
Around fifteen years ago, 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). In 2006, COMSA applied for and was granted Fair Trade certification status. The Fair-Trade price premium funds many social projects, including teachers’ salaries and school supplies. The premium also finances the construction of kitchens in the schools, providing meals for school children. This coffee is grown on the dark soil of the rainforest loaded with nutrients from the naturally decaying vegetation that grows below and above the coffee and uses the best practices for growing organic coffee. This medium roast Honduras Santa Rosa coffee highlights a sweet caramelly tropical fruit and bright milk chocolate note, balanced with a mild body and low acidity.
