The process of washed coffee starts from the moment of picking the coffee cherries. It is promoted within COMSA's members at this stage to only hand-pick 100% ripe cherries with, a red wine-like color. 

The farmers deliver the cherries to COMSA’s central wet mill after the day of collection is finished. Usually, from 4 to 9 or 10 p.m., the central mill gets the busiest. The cherries are left in the hopper overnight where the beans rest for 12 to 16 hours to ferment inside the cherries. The next morning the coffee cherries are de-pulped (removal of cherry skin from coffee beans). The wet parchment beans are left to rest in clean tanks to ferment without added water for 24 hours and the next morning they are washed and moved into the patios or raised beds where they are sun-dried for about 6 to 8 days, depending on the weather.

About The Producer

Established in 2001, as an initiative of a group of 61 coffee producers (12 females and 49 males) with the support of the Fundación para el Desarrollo Empresarial Rural (FUNDER) and a starting capital of close to $365. Now integrated by over 1500 farmers, COMSA has grown into a business role model, thanks to the dynamic, responsible, and innovative work ethics and vision of its members and workforce. 

From its foundation, the 61 members of COMSA decided that besides achieving high-quality coffee, their company was going to produce organic coffee and they were going to promote organic agriculture as one of the core principles pillars of their organization. At the time of their establishment, conventional agriculture which uses chemicals was the most common practice in the region.

Following their focus on organic agriculture and high-quality coffee, COMSA presented itself to the international markets and recovered the trust of international coffee buyers and Honduran coffee producers. The consolidation of COMSA over time in the international and local markets has allowed it to access different certifications that guarantee the quality of the coffee, the environmental practices, and social investments that the company has in place to benefit its members in their communities.
