Join us in in welcoming Omar Rodríguez, general manager of Honduras’ Cooperativa Cafetalera Capucas Limitada (COCAFCAL) cooperative, on his return trip to Wisconsin!
Señor Rodríguez paid us a visit in October of 2016, and we’re thrilled that he can join us once again in time to celebrate the release of this seasonal offering. Sample our Honduras Capucas Seasonal Fair Trade/Organic coffee, traditional Honduran food from Troubadour Baking Co., and the new Colectivo Keg Co. Lemongrass Pils created in partnership with our friends at 3 Sheeps Brewing – brewed with lemongrass sourced from COCAFCAL.
Free to attend & open to the public. Cash bar. Co-sponsored by Working Capital for Community Needs (WCCN), a social lending organization based in Madison that provides short-term loans to cooperatives and producer groups like COCAFCAL.
ABOUT THE COFFEE, available August 21, 2017: Every year Cooperativa Cafetalera Capucas Limitada (COCAFCAL), one of the best-known Fair Trade producer groups in Honduras, invites roasters and importers from around the world to judge its “¡Te Van a Conocer Compa!” coffee competition and taste coffees submitted by the cooperative’s individual members. COCAFCAL General Manager Omar Rodríguez Romero uses the event as a means of improving production methods, building relationships, and motivating producers to elevate coffee quality. Colectivo first participated in 2009 and returned this past March for the 10th anniversary, during which we selected two of our favorite micro-lots to create this limited seasonal offering. Honduras Capucas has notes of dried fruits, caramel, red apple, and dark chocolate with a rich, creamy body. Enjoy!
