The story behind the cup

COCAFCAL was one of the first registered coffee cooperatives in Honduras and has produced a microlot competition at the coop every year since 2008.

The cooperative has grown exponentially, and from each competition event new roaster-farmer relationships are formed, most of which carry on for years. COCAFCAL has since added a computer lab for their members, a coffee shop and roasting business to train members on other components of the supply chain, a coffee tree nursery and massive solar drying complex – not to mention the world’s nicest coffee eco-tourism facilities capable of hosting up to 80 people at a time. Microlots continue to be the jewel in COCAFCAL’s crown, with competition scores routinely breaking the 90 point ceiling, with lush acidity and exotic tropical fruit flavors. 

Recommendation: We recommend ordering whole bean coffee for the best freshness and flavor. Although we can grind your coffee, the coffee will start oxidizing and aging. The result is your pre-ground coffee may be flat in flavor. We do not guarantee customer satisfaction on pre-ground coffee.
