Marcala is a municipality in Southwestern Honduras, near La Paz. The land is known particularly for its exceptional coffee, which has exceeded its reputation throughout the national and international coffee market. There are some registries of coffee producing farms from 1937-38. However, the modernization and intensification of production did not occur until the early 1970s, which coincides with the arrival of German families to Marcala. To this day, coffee crops have become one of Marcala’s most precious patrimonies. To protect the prestige, the quality, and the namesake of coffee from this region, in 2005 a DOP (Protected Origin Denomination) was awarded to Café de Marcala, which was the first awarded to a Central American country.
The COMSA coop has been producing consistently excellent coffee like this one for years now and their expertise really shows in the cup. This bean has a rustic, earthy sweetness that reminds me of brown sugar or perhaps sugar in the raw. This makes me hesitate to really call this a "sweet" coffee in the sense that most people think of it. This is an very balanced and smooth coffee with notes of milk chocolate and orange. A very pleasent nutty, earthy character finishes it off nicely.
COMSA is fully certified organic as well as Fair Trade so you can rest easy that both the workers and environment are being taken care of.
