In Western Honduras, the Agricultural Cooperative Cafetalera San Antonio Limited (COAGRICSAL) is an organisation of coffee, cocoa and pepper producers that was formed in 1998 with 32 members. The group has since grown to more than 1,500 member families and continues to grow each year.
COAGRICSAL is committed to social and environment standards, and in the interests of its member families has worked to create jobs and social projects including community centres, water projects, school maintenance and the building of community centres, police stations and access roads.
This coffee comes from approximately 300 COAGRICSAL producers who contributed to the Corozal collection centre in Corozal, Trinidad, Santa Bárbara. The coffee was washed and dried - 20% by producers on their own property, 30% on patios at the mill and approximately 50% in machine driers.
