Honduras Irma Landaverde

$16.35$77.65

This is our third year buying coffee directly from Irma Landaverde. The coffee we get from Irma seems to get better every year.  We are excited and grateful to continue bring her fantastic coffee to Ghost Town.

Here’s some background in how our relationship with Irma began:

In 2016 we visited the Las Capucas Coffee Cooperative in the Copan region of Honduras. Here we participated in the annual Te Van a Conocer, Compa coffee producer competition. Coffee farmers from the Coop are invited to submit their coffee crop for the year where it’s judged against coffees from other Coop members. We sampled nearly 150 coffees while we were there.
During our time there, Irma Landaverde was one of the top contenders and we were excited to return to Montana with her beautiful lot of coffee from that year. Irma has continued to produce wonderful coffee, and we have continued to buy coffee directly from her ever since.

The COCAFAL or Capucas Coffee Cooperative Limited is located in the Las Capucas municipality within the renowned coffee growing Copan region of Honduras. COCOFAL was founded in 1999 by Omar Rodriguez, and since then the coop has grown to over 700 members. Since 2008, the Coop has hosted the Te Van a Conocer, Compa coffee growing competition where Coop members are invited to submit the best of their crop each year to be judged by a group of coffee professionals from around the world. Te Van a Conocer, Compa roughly translates to ‘You will get to know, friend!’

The Coop has its own modern wet mill to help with quality control of the first major step of coffee processing. The Coop has returned well thought-out financial resources back into the facility to continue its commitment to quality.
