    Honduran Marcala

    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). In 2001, fostered by a foundation called Funder, COMSA earned their organic certification from Bio Latina which has enabled them to market their coffee to more international buyers and realize better selling prices for their coffee. In February 2006, COMSA then applied for and was granted Fair Trade certification status. 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. Royal Coffee New York is proud to support COMSA by purchasing their excellent quality, organic and Fairtrade certified coffee.

    I've tried a wide variety of coffees in my time and this Honduras Marcala is by far my personal favorite. I like my coffee on the heavily cocoa, earthy, lightly tobacco side of things and this one, roasted to medium, is the best I've found. Plus, it's organic, fair trade and inexpensive to boot! In my quest to convert people to fresh, high-grade coffee, this is my secret weapon!
