ABOUT THIS COFFEE

Finca Humana (the Human Farm) is the first thing you will hear about Café Organico Marcala, S.A. (COMSA) if you make your way to visit this cooperative in Marcala, Honduras. The wellbeing of humans is foundational to the COMSA philosophy and educating more than 1,500 producer-members to successfully live in harmony with nature is everywhere at COMSA. It starts with the La Fortaleza, the COMSA biodynamic demonstration farm where the focus of transferring knowledge takes place through week- long seminars called Pata de Chucho (pawprints left by a stray dog), which aptly reveals COMSA’s dogged exploration for human productivity in harmony with nature.

The trailblazing ideas for using organic matter to productively cultivate high quality coffee is only a sliver of what COMSA teaches about the power of nature through the Finca Humana philosophy. COMSA dedicates significant funding from the proceeds of coffee sales to run a cutting-edge international school dedicated to filling children’s minds with possibility and training them to be the future leaders of Finca Humana. What makes it so good? The fundamentals: traceability to the Marcala region, which is a protected designation of origin (DENOMINACION DE ORIGEN CAFE DE MARCALA); meticulous post-harvest hand sorting of cherry; cherry floating to remove less dense beans; proper fermentation; long drying times; and a healthy dose of the COMSA philosophy and training.

    Good flavor and robust. Good mouth feel- thickness and richness. Not too acidic. Will definitely continue to drink and purchase.

    Still dialing this in Peru – San Ignacio (Medium – Full City)
    The nose is beautiful and as described
    Lot of cocoa and dark chocolate notes on this one

    I have been drinking Modest for over 2 years now and it has been consistently the best coffee I have ever had. You may change the flavors seasonally but it always is a smooth coffee with a fantastic flavor that never upsets my stomach and it fits any time of day. Morning cup, afternoon, or dinner. You have ruined me for any and all other coffee.
