Honduras - 121 Direct Trade
‘121’ Direct Trade
Farmer - Fausto Omar Lara
During my trip to Honduras in March 2019, I stayed a night at the ‘Cafe Capucas Cooperative’ where I was delighted to meet up with Fausto, the farmer of this coffee.
Cafe Capucas under the management of José Omar is a beautiful and diverse organisation which develops different projects all aimed at improving the quality of life of its producers.
Through the ‘121 Direct Trade’ project the farmer receives 70% of the cost of each bag we buy. Through an interpreter he told me:
“As a producer and member of the cooperative, I feel happy. Thanks for buying my coffee. It brings many benefits to my family. I have 3 kids to support and the extra money I receive helps them so they can study. I would also like to start a coffee shop in Honduras. Buying our coffee makes you ally and part of our family. We hope to continue our great partnership and I will continue to give my best coffee to you” - Fausto Omar Lara
Organically produced, washed processed coffee
