The coffee story

The processes of honey coffee start from the moment of picking the coffee cherries, it is promoted at this stage to only hand-pick 100% ripe cherries, red wine like colour. The farmers deliver the cherries in COMSA’s central wet mill and the team there selects the best-looking cherries and where lower quality cherries are observed such as unripe or over-ripe and dry cherries, then they are placed under shade for a second selection where lower quality cherries are removed in the final revision.
 
Afterwards the double selected cherries are placed in a clean tank filled with water, where they rest for 24 hours to hydrolyse the beans inside the cherries. Any floating cherries are discarded, to only process the cherries with ideal density. Once the coffee is hydrolysed, it is de-pulped to remove the cherry skin and then packed inside clean polypropylene sacks and transported to the patios or raised beds where they are sun-dried with its mucilage for 12 to 24 days, depending on weather conditions.
 
Once the dry cherries reach a range of 11.5% - 12% of moisture content, they are packed again into polypropylene sacks and stored in one of COMSA’s warehouses, ready to be prepared and shipped according to the agreed specifications between COMSA and the buyer of the coffee.

Leadership, innovation in organic farming

Established in 2001, as an initiative of a group of 61 coffee producers (12 females and 49 males) with the support of the Fundación para el Desarrollo Empresarial Rural (FUNDER) and a starting capital close to $365. Now integrated by over 1500 farmers, COMSA has grown into a business role model, thanks to the dynamic, responsible and innovative work ethics and vision of its members and workforce. From its foundation, the 61 members of COMSA decided that besides achieving high-quality coffee, their company was going to produce organic coffee and they were going to promote organic agriculture as one of the core principles pillars of their organization. At the time of their establishment, conventional agriculture which uses chemicals was the most common practice in the region. Following their focus on organic agriculture and high-quality coffee, COMSA presented itself to the international markets and recovered trust from international coffee buyers and Honduran coffee producers.

FAQ


Shipping
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.

Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:

  • Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
  • EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.

Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.
