Origin Story

Asociación Coordinadora de Mujeres Campesinas de La Paz (COMUCAP)

COMUCAP (Asociación Coordinadora de Mujeres Campesinas de La Paz) is a women’s cooperative located in southwestern Honduras, in the Marcala growing region. The association collectively owns over 100 hectares of farmland, as well as a wet mill, drying patios, and cupping and roasting rooms. Thanks to the success of the association, many of the members have been able to purchase their own land where they cultivate additional coffee and other crops.

When we last visited the co-op in January of 2019, we were impressed with the infrastructure the women had built to produce high quality coffee and other unique products. The association also grows aloe vera in the cooler, higher-elevation areas that are not suitable for coffee. The group uses the aloe vera to produce an assortment of products ranging from soap to beverages for domestic distribution.

The co-op continues to focus on the sensory evaluation needed to improve quality and is mindfully working on variety and micro-lot separation projects.

Why We Love This Coffee

COMUCAP started as a support group for the women of the La Paz community, and as the group grew, they received interest from NGOs who trained the members to cultivate coffee and other agricultural products. COMUCAP and Equator are both women-owned, which is why this coffee has been special to everyone at Equator since we first purchased it over ten years ago.

Associate Roaster Chris Sanders profiled this coffee, and after the initial test batches lacked acidity, he decided to shorten the Maillard phase. This resulted in a more prominent acidity which helped to bring out more of the coffee’s delicate flavors.
