The Country
Honduras is located in the heart of Central America, with Guatemala to its northwest, El Salvador to its southwest, and Nicaragua to its southeast. It has a broad expanse of Caribbean coastline to its north and its southernmost part opens into the Gulf of Fonseca, part of the Pacific coast. Its terrain includes coastal coastal lowlands (on both costs) as well as plains/sierras in the north, but the bulk of the land is forested highlands. It is in these highlands where Honduran coffee is grown. 

The Coffee
Coffee came to Honduras in the 18th century but was not a significant crop. As transportation in the country improved, coffee growing increased. In the 21st century the amount of coffee grown in Honduras increased dramatically. The altitude in the Marcala region affects how quickly coffee beans ripen, giving them more time (because of the cold nights) to sweeten. Coffee from the Marcala region of Honduras is some of the highest quality coffee in the country, and Marcala was the first area in Central America to gain Protected Designation of Origin status (a hard-to-achieve regional label that recognizes and protects indiginous agricultural products, and all production/processing/preparation must happen within that region).

The Co-op
COMSA (Cafe Organico Marcala, S.A) is located in the La Paz department of Honduras. It is a cooperative of organic farmers that began in 2000 and became FTO certified just 6 years later. The co-op consists of more than 1,500 producers growing their coffee at about 1,250 meters above sea level. The co-op producers hand-sort their cherries, enhancing the quality of the drinking experience. The co-op prides itself on the quality of its coffee, as well as its commitment to social justice, responsibility, and education.
