Honduras Coffee Plantations & Production

Over the past decade or so coffee farmer Relmy Delagado has enhanced and and developed Honduran speciality coffee from working in sales with one cooperative to helping set up AMPROCAL, a Women’s Cooperative that processes the La Fortuna crop. Finca La Fortuna has family at its heart and has been passed down through 4 generations now. La Fortuna is named after the legacy she has inherited along with the passion for and knowledge of coffee that comes with it.

The AMPROCAL is an association for women producers based in the Ocotepeque department of Honduras. Located West of Honduras near the border of El Salvador and Guatemala, the project was created to allow women and their families to help develop the cup quality of Honduras’ biggest export.

A Fairtrade Organisation supporting sustainable Plantations

As a Fairtrade certified Association, The AMPROCAL provides women with the resources to grow a sustainable crop. It also gives them a gateway into pushing their product to market and receiving a fair price in return.

The association helps provide the women with technical support, offering training and assistance in agronomic farming, such as the use of organic fertilisers, which in turn will bring an improved, more environmentally friendly product to market. The more education and enthusiasm from the farmers, the better price they will receive for their product, while also unlocking access to low interest credit to help the farmers expand the productivity and sustainability of their crop.
