Origin Stories – Café Capucas


COCAFCAL (Cooperativa Cafetalera Capucas Limitada)

We’ve been tracking the success of the COCAFCAL cooperative in Honduras to see how their educational outreach programs have progressed over the past three years. Café Capucas, a grower that is part of the cooperative, had some great news to share.

The ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly constructed University Virtual Classroom took place last spring. The project was a joint effort between the cooperative and the National Autonomous University of Honduras (UNAH). Starting January 2017, students from 15 communities will participate in distance learning programs. Degrees will be offered in finance, coffee company management, and pedagogy. Proof again that your purchase of ecoGrounds coffee does make a positive impact in the world!
