Going Deeper

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.

COCAFCAL’s mission is to promote the sustainable development of the local economy in the southern region of Copan, Honduras. It strives to develop financial, technical, productive and marketing services within the framework of its cooperative. The cooperative’s ultimate goal is to reduce poverty and increase the quality of life in the rural communities of western Honduras. The cooperative’s General Assembly has 10 members, nine of whom are women. The General Assembly manages the democratic use of the Fair Trade premium.
