WE EXPORT OUR COFFEE WITH THE BEST TASTE AND QUALITY

History

In 1885, Atanacio Rodolfo Romero, great grandfather of the Rodriguez-Romero family, bought big parts of land in the region of Capucas, Honduras, and began growing tobacco and a little bit of coffee for his private consumption. 75 years later, his son Atanacio Rodolfo Romero traveled to Costa Rica where he learned best practices to produce coffee of high quality, switched from growing tobacco to coffee, and set the groundwork for Capucas to become one of the most favorite coffee plantations in Honduras.In 1999 Omar Rodriguez, Antanacios son-in-law, founded the Cooperativa Cafetalera Capucas Limitada, COCAFCAL.

Visión

The Cooperativa Cafetalera Capucas Limitada contributes to a better use of environmental, financial and human resources in order to improve the quality of life of our families and the quality of coffee produced in our region of Copan – actions that together support the development of our nation.

Misión

COCAFCAL promotes sustainable development of the local economy in the southern region Copan, Honduras. It helps to develop financial, technical, productive and marketing services within the frame of cooperatives.  It is a shared effort trying to reduce poverty and increase the quality of life in the rural communities of the western Honduras.

NUESTRAS FAMILIAS

  • In 1999, Omar Rodriguez Interiano, a coffee farmer in Capucas, wanted to share his knowledge about growing and successfully selling coffee with other farmers of Capucas, most of them relatives of the family. The same year the Cooperativa Cafetalera Capucas Limitada, COCAFCAL, was founded. Within the next ten years, more and more small farmers joined, but some left too. Now the cooperative has more than 70 members, who are actively involved in the vision and mission of COCAFCAL. “There is still a big potential for new members,” says Omar Rodriguez Romero, General Manager of the cooperative. “But small is not only beautiful, small is our guarantee for good agricultural practices and best quality for our clients,” he adds.
