ABOUT THE COFFEE AND THE FARMERS
In the past few years, the coffees of Honduras have received increasing accolades in international competitions. The coffee is grown at elevations of 900m to 1,600m on ground that has been naturally fertilized, by time and seasons. The good taste though does not come from the fact that organic farming has taken place, but by the shade, cool weather, and expert processing. Natural fertilizers are added, such as a mixture of sawdust and chicken manure that has been properly aged.
CCCH was founded in 1998 and comprises over 10,000 farmers in 80 co-operatives based in the 12 mountainous states of Honduras. CCCH seeks to produce high quality coffee whilst improving the quality of life of its members. CCCH's programmes include micro-credit and savings, sustainable development and agricultural diversification.
