Product Description

Details

COMSA organization is located in the region of Montecillos. This organization produces certified "Marcala"coffees, which own an Denomination of Origin (4th of Latin America and 1st of Central America) since 2005. Marcala is a town located in La Paz County, in the south-west of Honduras. The certified coffee must be produced at more than 1100m of altitude, in one of 19 referenced towns, and obtain more than 80 points.

A few years ago, Marcala used to own a big cooperative that gathered many small producers which, after its breaking, left all the members without mill. This is why about sixty producers decided to get together to form the private society COMSA (Café Orgánico Marcala). Today, it is more than 700 producers constituting this society with a cooperation spirit, in which all employees are producers. They all follow cupping and biological agriculture classes. In addition, the cooperative subsidizes the community children's education. Besides producing organic coffees, they really highlight the orgnaic agriculture model and the consumption of organic food. There is even a market of organic products each week in Marcala.

Anastacio Argueta is the second generation of his family to work in coffee. Since 20 years, he cultivates 2 hectares of coffee on the Santiago Puringla city (La Paz County) and work in partnership with the COMSA society.

Thus, he produces 80 bags of green coffee each year, which he transforms in his "beneficio seco" where he washes his cherries and then makes them sun dried. The harvest is made at full maturity, therefore ensuring the quality of the coffee.

When asking Anastacio about his life goal by producing coffee, he simply answers that he would like his production to bring him enough revenue to cover his everyday needs, and allow him one day to go on a peaceful retirement. He also adds that he has been working so that his children get passionate about it and like coffee production.
