Yes, we are back with Jacu, the roastery from Ålesund. This time the main coffee is an organic one originating from Honduras.
This time it is in place sharing the history of Maria Zealaya:
A few years ago, Marcala used to own a big cooperative that gathered many small producers which, after its breaking, left all the members without mill. This is why about sixty producers decided to get together to form the private society COMSA (Café Orgánico Marcala). Today, it is more than 700 producers constituting this society with a cooperation spirit, in which all employees are producers. They all follow cupping and biological agriculture classes. In addition, the cooperative subsidizes the community children’s education. Besides producing organic coffees, they really highlight the organic agriculture model and the consumption of organic food. There is even a market of organic products each week in Marcala. Maria Dolorez Zealaya works with her whole family on the coffee production since more than 25 years, with an organic mode of production. Coffee producers for more than 3 generations, the Zelaya family cultivates 4 hectares of coffee bushes in Musula, in the region of Marcala (La Paz County).
