Cooperativa Cafetalera Capucas Limitada (Cocafcal) or Capucas as they are better known, is situated on and around the Celaque mountain, the highest peak in Honduras. Capucas was founded in 1999 by Jose Omar Rodriguez and takes its name from the local town of Las Capucas. Capuquitas is a select coffee from the highest altitude farms at Capucas. It has been cupped at origin and blended to ensure only the best quality coffees are selected. “Capuquitas” is a play on words -“quitas” is a term of endearment used which is usually added onto a person’s name, in this case it is added to Capucas for this microlot coffee. The coffee is harvested at its optimum ripeness and handed in at the cooperative. It is then washed, dried in a solar dryer and stored in parchment before being trucked to the port of Puerto Cortés.

The Cooperative has many initiatives to improve the lives of workers and the local community. In 2016 Capucas partnered wth the National Autonomous University of Honduras(UNAH) to provide a university education though virtual classrooms in this rural area. They also have a football academy and a virtual library for members and children of Capucas Cooperative.
