Nearly 90-year-old Norma is a woman — legend in the Honduras coffee industry! We established our partnership with Norma’s farm in 2018 and are still continuing to source coffee from her due to the high-quality standards and consistency she maintains. And yes, it's a certified Organic coffee!
The cherries come from 700 producers and, after collection at the mill, are weighted, de-pulped, and washed. Every lot produced is cupped and scored at the lab. CEIBA is an exclusive blend of higher scoring coffees. The pulp and skin of the coffees are used to produce organic compost. This coffee is Organic certified as part of Cafe Organico de Marcala SA.
This Organic certified lot was grown at an impressive 2000+ masl. Traditional varieties from this region are JARC (developed by the Jimma Agricultural Research Centre) and local landraces - domesticated, locally adapted, traditional varieties of coffee, native to the immediate surroundings.
