Honduran Coffee: COMSA Cooperative Specialty Coffee

Café Orgánico Marcala (COMSA) was founded with a vision of creating new and alternative development opportunities for small-scale coffee farmers in the region of Marcala, Honduras. The organization originally brought together 69 small-scale farmers of Lenca origin who were interested in selling their coffee collectively under the umbrella of a rural credit union.

At that time, the predominant production system in the region used conventional (chemical) practices and sold to the local coyotes, often at prices that did not even cover the farmers’ production costs. One of the primary founding objectives of COMSA was to seek out and promote new ways of thinking – both in production, moving from conventional to organic production; and in markets, moving from commercial to specialty buyers.

Today, COMSA Cooperative specialty coffee is produced by over 1200 farming members. Their lead farmers continue to demonstrate effective, regenerative organic practices that are both improving productivity and protecting their plants from common diseases.

Thanks to our friends at Cooperative Coffees for helping us share the story of our friends at COMSA.
