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!

Producer: Francis Melgar Farm: Finca El Emperador Farm size: 35 manzanas (20 cultivated) Location: Las Capucas village, San Pedro de Copán town, Copán region, Honduras. Cultivated varietals: Parainema, Catimor, Obatã Processes: Washed, Honey and Natural Francis, the 4th generation of coffee farmers in his family, inherited his farm from his father, Julio César. He recalls all workers at the farm used to call his dad "the emperor" because of his name. That is where the farm's name comes from. Currently the president of Capucas, Francis lived away from Capucas for many years working in construction. He returned 8 years ago, took over the farm management and had to face the leaf rust crisis that plagued the country straight away.  After the crisis, he started renovating farm, cutting the old Catuaí and Caturra plants and making room for more resistant varietals like Parainema and Obatā. "I treat my farm like a baby that needs a lot of looking after. It is like a family member, who works with me for an income," he says. Francis prides himself on the cleanliness of his farm, where trees are grown in rows 2m apart from each other in a Brazilian style.

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.
