The farm of Marcafe is based in the city of Marcala, La Paz, in Honduras. It was founded with the objective of supporting local producers and families. It strives to promote better opportunities and a better quality of life through the proud sales of its coffee. This idea arose from the community’s need for employment, a use of natural resources, and a need for social, economic, and environmental sustainability.
The producers are regular people who seek and work toward a better quality of life for their families. They have strong principles and perseverance that helps them cultivate their community.
Marcafe is involved in the entire process and therefore guarantees quality and consistency each step of the way. Marcafe carries out activities such as collection, purchase, sale and processing of coffee. All of this while working directly with partners and producers in the area. They are committed to the development of the local economy, all while allowing both economic and social benefits to be obtained in accordance with environmental protection standards.
