Timeline

Harvest and export times are based off when a particular coffee will be at its peak quality. Cherries picked at the start of the harvest season tend to be underdeveloped, and those picked at the end are often overdeveloped, so producers aim for that sweet spot in the middle.

Honduras

The average altitude in the La Paz region of Honduras is around 1,300 – 1,500 masl (meters above sea level), which makes for exquisite coffee growing. Flavor profiles at this elevation tend to swing more chocolatey and spicier, and avid coffee lovers can expect to find notes of wine and vanilla in their brew. La Paz also enjoys favorable rainfall and warm temperatures during harvest season, which goes from December until April. Café Organico Marcala, S.A. (or COMSA) is taking the best of Marcala and making it better, both for the Earth and its people.
