Café Orgánico Marcala S.A. de C.V. (COMSA)

Café Orgánico Marcala S.A. de C.V. (COMSA) has been promoting sustainability and responsibility across their coffee business, spanning everything from the environment to producers to customer relations, for 18 years in Marcala, Honduras. This picturesque region is a notable coffee producing area and is known as the first protected designation of origin for coffee.

When asked why the Bird Friendly certification was important to her and her farm, COMSA member Miriam Pérez reflected, “It is important to care for and create biodiversity...This creates balance in life on this planet.” Their conscientious stewardship is grounded in their beliefs: “We feel and see ourselves as beings of light, with a divine level of consciousness that allows us to see God in the nature, the water, the air, the trees, the flowers, and the birds.”
