Grown in an area with a relatively high amount of single monthers, our Honduran coffee comes from the Cooperativa RAOS. This co-op accepts, approves, and pays a premium for this organic coffee from coffee farms run by women.This ensures that these single moms (who are pretty freaking awesome, we might add) are able to support their family--whether they have one child or many. The farms on which they grow and harvest their coffee is less than 4 hectacres. We're super pumped to offer such an amazing coffee from such amazing women.
Additionally, your purchase helps to provide food, water, clothing, and education for Tino in Huehuetenango, Guatelama, which is also in Central America. He truly appreciates your help with providing for his education. We're currently looking to sponsor a child in Honduras, so please send any information you may have your way of small independent orphanages/schools looking for sponsors.
Most people in the industry wait to use their coffee beans/grounds for between 3 and 11 days from the date it was roasted. It is ok to use it before, but if you wait a little bit, you might find you love our coffee even more.

In order to keep your coffee as fresh as possible, make sure you keep your beans away from coffee's four main enemies: air, moisture, heat, and light. Preferably, keep your coffee in an air-tight container, but out of light. We know our beans are pretty, but keeping the beans in an opaque container will prolong their shelf life. Do not put your beans in a cabinet above the stove, or in an area that receives strong sunlight. Lastly, do not put your beans in the freezer. We follow the rule of wherever we would be comfortable, there our beans will be comfortable too. Follow these tips and your coffee will taste great for an extended amount of time!
