The Rio Olancho Direct Trade Coffee Project is coordinated through The Carpenteros and Friends, a volunteer group from Southern Ontario that has been partnering with Honduran communities for the past 20 years.


While the proper altitude and field conditions are important factors for top quality, high-grown Arabica coffee, it takes much more.


Farmers who participate in the Rio Olancho Project attend workshops and receive training and supervision through the Honduran Coffee Institute (IHCAFE), are given agricultural training through Diaconia Nacional, and their coffee is processed, cupped and evaluated at the modern COCAOL processing facility in nearby Santa Maria del Real.
