Certifications
In the year 2000, 62 Honduran coffee farmers joined together with a common goal to transform their farms from conventional to organic production and formed COMSA (Cafe Organico Marcala, S.A). In 2001, fostered by a foundation called Funder, COMSA earned their organic certification from Bio Latina which has enabled them to market their coffee to more international buyers and realize better selling prices for their coffee.
In February 2006, COMSA then applied for and was granted Fair Trade certification status. COMSA uses the Fair Trade price premium to fund many social projects including paying teachers’ salaries and purchasing school supplies. The premium also finances the construction of kitchens in the schools in support of the Merienda Escolar program that provides meals for school children. Royal Coffee New York is proud to support COMSA by purchasing their excellent quality, organic and Fair Trade certified coffee.

Light roast Honduras

Light roast, as I avoid oily beans due to my machine’s preferences. But it’s perhaps too light - no body or depth, and somewhat bitter.

Organic Honduras

Please do not credit me with additional coffee. My wife and I found the Honduras coffee to have an unpleasant taste - a taste that we have associated with bad beans or under roasted beans. This was a similar off taste that we experienced with a previous roast of Columbian coffee. We have enjoyed your Nicaraguan, Mexican, and Peruvian roasted beans and your change of Columbian sourced beans. For years we only purchased and drank Hawaiian Kona coffee from Pele Estates until they sold their business and farm. The new owners were unable to consistently roast the beans. For the last two years I have been looking for a local roaster that would have some consistency in their product. I find that your coffee is very enjoyable. My wife and I occasionally find sourced coffee from your shop that has an off flavor for our taste. I will just avoid the Honduras coffee in the future. We are in our mid 70’s and make coffee in a manual pour over coffee cone.

Not for me

I figured I would try this to round out my stock. Not for my pallet at all, to fruity. Another review noted that there is a sourness, I agree. Well, I gave it a try .....
