While all of our blends rotate ingredients throughout the year as fresh crops become available, Roast Boy features Certified USDA Organic coffee from Latin America.
Current Components: Organic Honduras Marcala COMSA, Organic Colombia Sierra Nevada
In 2000, sixty-two Honduran farmers joined together with a common goal to transform their farms from conventional to organic production and formed COMSA (Café 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. COMSA funds many local projects including paying teacher salaries and buying school supplies.
ASOPROKAN stands for “Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta Agroecological Indigenous Kankuam Producers Association”. This coop was formed by the indigenous tribe, Kankuamo, which is a unique attribute to this coffee. The coop is located in a town called Atanquez, which is located on the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountain range. ASOPROKAN was created in 2008 and it consists of 150 indigenous families. It was started to initiate programs for the socio-cultural and socio-economic recovery of the Kankuamo people. The organization resides on about 520 hectares, providing each family with about 3 hectares.
