The Story

Finca La Esmeralda belongs to María Cristina Reyes and is set near the town of Yamaranguila in Western Honduras. Her coffee trees grow under the shade of large hardwood and fruit trees, providing a diverse home to numerous birds and wildlife. This respect for the environment pays dividends with her coffee quality improving each year in step with the condition of her farm. Selective picking and precise washed processing have been implemented since joining the COMSA Cooperative and the resulting coffee is a smooth and well balanced representation of the area.

Starting in 2001 with 69 local producers, COMSA (Café Orgánico Marcala) set out to improve their communities' coffee and livelihoods through sustainable organic production. Now they represent over 1,200 members and provide training in organic farm regeneration, water management and wildlife conservation. The improved quality and prices continue to motivate producing families and act as a beacon of inspiration as to the long-term sustainability of organic specialty practices.

Our ambition is to continue sourcing, roasting and crafting the finest coffees from the heart of East London.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What date will my coffee be roasted?

    We aim to ship our coffee as fresh as possible, however you may receive coffee roasted up to 7 days prior to the shipping date.

  • What grind type should I choose?

    We offer multiple grind options from Cafetiere to Espresso and everything between. Our domestic espresso grind is slightly coarser and is perfect for home espresso machines, such as DeLonghi or Sage whereas the commercial espresso grind is better suited to commercial machines like La Marzocco or Sanremo. If you’re not sure what grind to choose please get in touch with our team at admin@climpsonandsons to see how they can help. Remember, pre-ground coffee is not an exact science and is only one of many brewing variables. For better brewing, why not take a look at one of our brew guides here

  • Can I order 1kg of coffee?

    This is not something we currently offer but why not consider helping us reduce packaging by ordering a 2kg bag instead? Wholebean coffee has a longer shelf life than you might think, up to 3 months!
