Organic single origin from the 1st Denomination of Origin in Central America.
Adin Ramos, produces coffee located in the region of Montecillos. He produces certified "Marcala"coffees, which owns a Denomination of Origin (the 1st of Central America) and is one of the greatest origins in central America. Marcela is a town located in La Paz County, in the south-west of Honduras.
About sixty producers decided to get together to form the private society COMSA (Café Orgánico Marcala). Today, it has grown to more than 700 - all employees are producers. The cooperative subsidises community education and has also created a tasting and organic agriculture classes for all producers.
Adin Ramos' microlot is organic and certified Bird Friendly (local fauna and flora protection).
Adin Ramos and his wife have been producing coffee on two hectares for 28 years, in Michigane (La Paz County). Thus, they produce 250 coffee bags each year. Besides coffee, this family also produces beans and corn to sell.
In 2013-2014, Adin's farm suffered a lot from the Roya [leaf rust], but thanks to his alliance with COMSA, they set up new production and organic fertilisation techniques, allowing him to quickly get incredible micro lots into production.
To him, what makes his farm produce coffees of quality is the production altitude, the biological practices and the shaded trees.
