HONDURAN COMSA FAIR TRADE ORGANIC
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 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.
Tasting Notes: A full bodied and chocolaty cup of coffee. Very smooth, a semi-sweet chocolate cup with an underlying milk chocolate note and some sweetness. Mild acidity, medium bodied.
