Single Estate Coffees

In the year 2001, 61 Honduran coffee farmers (12 females and 49 males) joined together with a common goal to transform their farms from conventional to organic production in order to produce high quality coffee and thus formed COMSA co-operative (Cafe Organico Marcala, S.A). This specialty coffee is grown in the area of Marcala, which is located in the mountain range of Montecillos, at heights between 1,200 – 1,700 masl.
The natural process starts from the moment the ripe coffee cherries are hand-picked by the local farmers. Then they deliver the cherries to COMSA’s central wet mill and the team there selects the best-looking cherries. Afterwards the cherries with red wine like colour are placed in a clean tank filled with water, where they rest for 24 hours to hydrolyse the beans inside the cherries. Once the coffee is hydrolysed, it is packed inside clean polypropylene sacks and transported to the patios or raised beds where they are sun-dried for 12 to 24 days, depending on weather conditions.

Our team in their coffee exploring trip to Ethiopia, visited the washing station called Adola in the Guji region surrounded by green and lush forest and huge mountains. There, they were welcomed by the hosts waiting to start a cupping session. In the meantime they also talked about how the local small farmers are collecting only the red ripe cherries and they let them ferment in polybags for 120 hours while laying on the raised beds and getting dry in a slow manner. Our team got ecstatic with the excquisite taste of this unique and rare coffee and they already knew they had found the next coffee that would complete our latest Single Estate selection.
