About the Farmer

Honduras might be small in size, but it has a lot to offer. Despite challenges such as high poverty rates, immigration, and coffee leaf rust, the country's coffee scene remains strong, positioning itself as Central America's largest coffee producer.
Montecillos is one of the six official coffee-producing regions in Honduras, and without a doubt, a very special one. Located along the Salvadoran border in the southwest of the country, Montecillos has ideal weather conditions and high altitudes for the growth of specialty coffee. As a result of this region's quality, Montecillos has gained worldwide recognition and is home to Honduras' first origin designation: Café de Marcala.

This L+B Flor Azul selection comes from our friends at COMSA, located in the district of Marcala, La Paz. The cooperative was founded in 2000 by 45 community-minded farmers. At the time, farmers were suffering rock-bottom coffee prices which made it unprofitable to harvest coffee. Nevertheless, COMSA’s farmers united forces in order to access specialty markets and rebuild their livelihoods. Today, the cooperative is a leader in organic coffee production, serving over 1,200 members. By offering training focused on organic farming and farm diversification, a school for their children, support for processing infrastructure, and more, the cooperative benefits its farmer members and the community as a whole.
