Introducing our Honduras Organic Coffee. This coffee is direct-sourced, certified organic, Fair Trade certified, and dried and stored at a state-of-the-art facility in Honduras before it is shipped to SonRise Coffee to be micro-batch roasted fresh and delivered to you for that perfect cup of coffee.
A part of our vision for sourcing, roasting, and selling coffee is to provide local coffee farmers an opportunity to thrive and run a successful business. That is why we’ve chosen to source our Honduras organic coffee directly from a farm, or Finca, in the mountains of Honduras. When you are looking for the best organic coffee you can find, single-origin, fair-trade organic coffee is the way to go!
Who is Growing Our Honduras Coffee?
All of our SonRise’s Honduras organic coffee is sourced directly from a farm or Finca owned and operated by Gerardo Mejía, who is a 34 years old coffee farmer. He is a second-generation organic and fair trade coffee grower.
“My dad is the first person in our region who started to cultivate coffee with certificates: Fair Trade and Organic. He knew that it was going to be beneficial…”Gerardo Mejía
Gerardo Mejía, along with 250+ other local coffee farmers in Honduras, has been collaborating and are now operating under a cooperation called Cafés Especiales Mercedes Ocotepeque (Cafesmo).
- The farm is Fair Trade and Organic Certified.

What Is Fair Trade Coffee?
Fair Trade certified coffee simply means that the product has been tracked and reviewed throughout the entire supply chain to ensure that the coffee farmer and others in the supply chain have been fairly paid for their labor and product and that the proper sustainability standards were followed. The Fair Trade certificate allows the roaster or consumer to trace where their coffee coming from and support local communities in the process.
