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.

We roast this coffee light to highlight its orange notes. It is a very balanced coffee with juicy acidity and a long aftertaste.
We love to brew this coffee with V60 to get its crispy freshness, but it works well with many drip style brewing methods.
Recommended Brewing Temperature : 198 - 202 F.
