Quality, consistency & volume for all tastes
Cooperativa Cafetalera Capucas Limitada (COCAFCAL) was founded in 1999 by Omar Rodríguez Interiano and a group of coffee producers in the village of Las Capucas. Back then, Omar wanted to share his knowledge on cultivation and successful commercialisation with local growers, many of whom were part of his family. Today we are a family of more than 900 coffee farmers who share a common vision: to grow coffee with social and environmental responsibility, adding value to our clients and contributing to the well-being of our people. We are organic certified and champion our members by separating lots that can be sold as single farm micro-lots. Capucas also has a handful of social projects: we support a group of female producers who sell roasted coffee in the internal market, we built a football field (our first championship started just now, in February 2020!) and we partnered with a university to offer online courses. Our cupping lab is open to all and we encourage growers to learn!Translate

Seller (Pending)Producer: Iris Suyapa Alvarado Farm: Finca El Paraíso Farm size: 12 manzanas Location: Yaunera village, San Pedro de Copán town, Copán region, Honduras. Next to Cerro (hill) Yaunera Cultivated varietals: Parainema, Icatu and Caturra Processes: Washed, Honey and Natural One of 6 kids, Iris was never encouraged to be a farmer. For her father, coffee was not a woman's job. She was, however, encouraged to study and graduated as an industrial engineer in the local university of Santa Rosa. She started working with sustainability projects in Capucas soon after, at age 25. Coffee has always been Iris passion. "As a child, I used to cry for it! I loved how every coffee tasted differently," she recalls. When she inherited 12 manzanas of the original 100 manzanas owned by her dad (less than what her brothers were given), she began her journey as a grower. With a smaller plot to cultivate, Iris has been quality-driven from the beginning, something rather unorthodox for women in Honduras. She used to dedicate her spare time at Capucas to cupping, which led her to an opportunity to study sensory science at Ihcafé and later to become certified as a Q-Grader. Now she is the head of quality control for the co-operative and trains other workers and farmers. Iris is also one of the founding members of Flor del Campo, a group of female growers that got together to roast and sell their coffee to the internal market. Iris supports the group with training sessions in cupping and quality control.
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.
When calculating price, you can select your preferred currency: USD, CHF, EUR, or GBP.
2 payment methods are accepted on Algrano:
1. Buy now, pay later
Pay your coffee after its delivered in Europe. This option generates an additional fee, displayed in the shopping cart.
3. Pay 10 days after placing the order
We will send you a 10 day invoice straight after you placed your order.
