Producer: Cornélio Nuñez Farm: Finca La Laguna Farm size: 2.8 manzanas Location: Petatillo village, San Pedro de Copán town, Copán region, Honduras. Next to the Cerro (hill) Chimis Cultivated varietals: Yellow and Red Colombia, Icatú and Icafé-90 Processes: Washed  Cornélio has 2 "parcelas" or plots on mountain slopes near Cerro Chimis (Chimis Hill) in Petatillo. He lost most of trees on one of hills to the leaf rust crisis and has been focusing on his best parcela since. This is where this yellow Colombia lot comes from. The plot is favoured by good exposure to the sun and protection from strong winds. Petatillo village is located at a short ride from Las Capucas and has been Cornélio's home all his life. Originally from Lempira, his father was brought to the region by the government in an effort to populate the area. Today there are 24 families in the village, including Cornélio's and the families of his two siblings, all coffee producers.  The coffee is grown organically under the shade of banana and orange trees and fertilized with coffee pulp. The cherries are processed at the farm up to dry parchment and defective beans are manually cleaned. Cornélio makes sure that the workers are not using perfumes or creams so the coffee won't be contaminated by external odours. After that, sacks of parchment are taken to Capucas for quality control and storage until they are sold.

About the group Translate

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!

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.
