Cooperativa Cafetalera Capucas Limitada (Cocafcal) or Capucas as they are better known, is situated on and around the Celaque mountain, which is the highest peak in Honduras.
The coffee is harvested at its optimum ripeness and handed in at the cooperative. It is then washed, dried in a solar dryer, and stored in parchment before being trucked to the port of Puerto Cortés. Capucas were the first in the country to build a facility to dry micro-lots in a large scale with solar dryers.
The cooperative has many initiatives to improve the lives of workers and the local community, for example; they pay for a GP to treat workers for free in their health centre, and in 2016 Capucas partnered with the National Autonomous University of Honduras (UNAH) to be able to offer a university education for its members. They also have a football academy which is free to join, and a virtual library for members, children and partners of Capucas Cooperative.
This coffee is roasted medium-light, boasting notes of cacao, smokey tannins and lime zest. Perfect for AeroPress and filter!
