“Manos de Mujer” is a group of female coffee producers within the COMSA organization located in Marcala, Honduras. This initiative was started in September 2013 for the purpose of improving the living standards of the female members of COMSA that own and operate their own farms. But it’s not just coffee that these women produce, they are also part of a larger initiative of female farmers of COMSA trying to diversify their farms beyond coffee in an effort to have a more sustainable income throughout the year. To contribute, they’ve planted fruit and vegetable gardens and started raising chickens, pigs and cows. This initiative by COMSA aims to promote gender equity at the farms and throughout the community.
This organic, fair-trade coffee is grown in a micro lot in southwestern Honduras. It is harvested between December and April at 1,500 meters.
