Our latest Origin Coffee is in! Joffrey’s Coffee is pleased to introduce Honduras Ocotepeque (pronounced: Coat-A-Peck-Que), grown by the COCAMOL cooperative in Honduras.
The cooperative rests in the Mercedes Ocotepeque hills at the perfect altitude for growing high grade coffee, between 3800 to 4800 feet. Now with over 30 member farms the cooperative has come a long way since being formed in 1997. The cooperative has raised both the standard of the coffee and the quality of life in their community.
During a visit to the cooperative last January, our Roastmaster, Chris De Mezzo was truly inspired by the love, dedication and attention these local farmers poured over their crop, to produce beans that have a deliciously unique and memorable flavor. This coffee is a delight to drink, smooth and full bodied with a hint of citrus and chocolate notes.
The COCAMOL cooperative is the kind of success story we love to be support. It was started in 1997 by a small group of coffee producers with a mission to improve the quality of their crop and to reduce the impact of coffee farming on their local environment.
Honduras Ocotepeque is on sale in our store now! When you taste Honduras Ocotepeque, you will taste both the farmer’s passion for coffee excellence and ours!
