Honduras RFA Siguatepeque El Jaguar is sourced from members of La Cooperativa Cafetalera Siguatepeque Limitada formerly known as La Cooperativa de Horticultors Siguatepeque Limitada (COHORSIL), which was formed in 1980 by a group of vegetable farmers who decided to diversify their farms and began growing coffee.
Due to the high altitude and the prime weather conditions in the municipality of Siguatepeque, Honduras, COHORSIL started exporting specialty coffee to the international market in 2001. The wet and dry mill at COHORSIL has a certification in quality management systems from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO-9001). COHORSIL also has an organic fertilizer production plant that uses coffee pulp as the base ingredient and California earthworms to promote decomposition.
