Capucas, Honduras


Capucas Co-operative is situated on and around the Celaque mountain, which is the highest peak in Honduras. Celaque means ‘box of water’ in the local Lenca language, and the mountain is the source for many rivers and streams.

This coffee is produced and processed by families that have diversified incomes and that, along with their coffee farms, also have bee hives.

With all those extra pollinators helping to pollinate the coffee, the flavour within the cup is excellent, with a boozy pineapple and rum finish.

Capucas, Honduras

Cooperativa Cafetalera Capucas Limitada (Cocafcal) or Capucas was founded in 1999 by Jose Omar Rodriguez and takes its name from the local town of Las Capucas.

The objective is for Capucas to further promote honey production among their associates – coffee producers and beekeepers – and therefore diversify their income and have great economic stability. Existing apiarists can benefit from new and better hives, and those new to bee-keeping, equipment and training. It is hoped the women and young of the communities will make the most of this opportunity.
