Produced by Fair Trade certified COMSA (Café Orgánico Marcala, S.A.), this coffee is grown on a number of small organic farms in Marcala, Honduras. Roasted dark, this coffee is sweet and syrupy with notes of rich chocolate and creamy hazelnut and a clean and balanced cup.

COMSA (Café Orgánico Marcala, S.A.) was founded in the year 2000 by 60 Honduran coffee farmers who joined together with common goals: to transform their farms from conventional to organic production and to directly export their coffee. In 2001, fostered by a foundation called FUNDER, they earned their organic certification from Bio Latina. This has enabled them to market their coffee to more international buyers and realize better selling prices. In February 2006, COMSA applied for and was granted Fair Trade certification status.

In recent years, COMSA has grown to well over a 1000 member farmers, focusing on economic, social, and environmental goals to reduce poverty and promote sustainable development. They fund many social projects including paying teachers’ salaries and purchasing school supplies.

COMSA is home to an innovative experimental farm called La Fortaleza where the members come together to exchange ideas with other growers. The philosophy of COMSA’s organic vision emphasizes the “5 Ms”: (organic) Material, Microorganisms, Minerals, (living) Molecules, and (gray) Matter or brain power. All five are essential to healthy soil.

Taking Good Care of Our Coffee, Our People, Our Farmers, Our Planet

Established in 2010 in downtown Floyd, VA (pop 432), Red Rooster was created with the simple notion of roasting excellent coffee for the owner’s existing coffee house. Soon, word of Red Rooster's quality spread around Virginia and up and down the East Coast.

Today, we employ 30 people while roasting some of the best coffee in the world. We are also the only coffee company in the country with a licensed on-site childcare facility for our employee's children.

While we've won numerous awards and accolades for our coffee quality, our true passion is in making a positive social impact both at home and abroad at the coffee's origin.
