The coffee comes from the Ocotepeque region in western Honduras and is organically grown there.
COCAMOL, the Cooperativa Cafetaleta Mercedes Ocotepequ Limitada was founded in 1997 with 21 founding members and has since grown to 51 members, 21 of whom are women. Providing women with good access to the market and a sustainable livelihood is still very important in many Latin American countries and anything but taken for granted.
Through the cooperation in the Fair Trade and organic certified cooperative, the families have been able to increase the quality and the production volume of the coffee and have better access to the market, which is central to their living conditions.
The coffee is cultivated at an altitude of 1300 to 1550 metres, which gives it the "Stricly Hard Bean" quality label.
