Capucas is a town in the very western San Pedro region of Copan, Honduras. This coffee is grown by COCAFCAL (Cooperativa Cafetelera Capucas Limitada) COCAFCAL was founded in 1999 by a group of 55 coffee producers. This coop, run by Omar Rodriguez, uses modern washing and drying facilities to create a fabulous coffee. The town of Capucas has more than 80 families who produce coffee, and many of them have "micro-mills" to process their coffee, and then sell it through the coop. They all take pride in their plantations and products. Recently, the coop has attained Fair Trade, Organic and Rainforest Alliance certification. COCAFCAL's mission is to promote the sustainable development of the local economy, as well as reduce poverty and increase the quality of life for the town's residents. The programs they provide, including scholarships fro children, medical assistance, workshops, financial and technical support for a group of women, a community library and a community soccer field, benefit 2500 people. This is a lightly acidic coffee. We recommend a light to medium roast.
