FAIR TRADE ORGANIC - SINGLE ORIGIN
Founded in 1997, Cooperativa Regional de Agricultores Orgánicos de la Sierra (RAOS), was the first cooperative of small and medium organic coffee producers in Honduras. RAOS has 270 members, many of them pioneers in the organic movement with decades of experience cultivating coffee.
Others are from a new generation of producers who grew up on their parents’ organic farms. Many of these producers have built new ecologically run micro-mills with a demucilager, which uses very little water and controls the amount of mucilage that remains on the coffee bean after depulping without fermenting or washing the coffee. RAOS also has a cupping lab and certified Q grader who cups every lot to ensure quality. The Marcala region where RAOS operates has a protected designation of origin (DENOMINACIÓN DE ORIGEN CAFÉ DE MARCALA) to preserve the renowned reputation of the Marcala profile.
Full City • Medium
Dark Chocolate • Black Tea • Earthy
Honduras is one of our other “go-to” coffees due to it’s subtle and wide-ranging flavor. When roasted Full City/Medium it can be delicate and sweet, and when roasted French we find a deep and smooth cup.
