In 2000, sixty-two Honduran coffee farmers joined to form COMSA (Cafe Organico Marcala). Fostered by a foundation called Funder, COMSA earned their organic certification from Bio Latina which has enabled them to market their coffee to more international buyers and realize better selling prices for their coffee. In February 2006, COMSA applied for and were 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.
This organic, fair-trade coffee is grown in La Paz, Marcala in southwestern Honduras. It is harvested during the winter at 1,750m.
