Honduras – Las Capucas
This Organic and Fair Trade certified coffee is grown by a small cooperative of 74 farmers based around the community of Las Capucas, Honduras. By working together the farmers have been able to invest in their community and their farms and to improve the quality of their coffee.
Recent projects include the construction of a virtual library with internet access for cooperative members and teachers available for free computer instruction. An in-house organic fertiliser production facility and honey production on the coffee plantations have been developed to provide income outside the coffee harvest season.
