OUR DECAF NAMESAKE
BABY INDIE – BORN IN THE WILD
We named our Decaf coffee Baby Indie. Baby Indie is the embodiment of BOS’s mission; rescued orangutans having babies in the wild. Baby Indie's mother, Inung was rescued in the spring of 2000 and released three years later. Our Post-Release Monitoring team discovered Inung with a baby clinging to her body in the winter of 2021. Inung and baby Indie are in good health and appeared to be thriving in the forest. Rehabilitated orangutans are working hard to create the next generation of wild orangutans.

Café Orgánico Marcala S.A. (COMSA)
SHG EP, Fairtrade & Organic Certified
Café Orgánico Marcala (COMSA) is located in Marcala, La Paz, in Western Honduras. This region is one of the poorest in the country. People are highly dependent on agriculture and coffee cultivation. COMSA was founded in 2000 by 69 community-minded farmers. At the time, farmers were suffering rock bottom coffee prices which made it unprofitable to harvest coffee. Most farmers in the area were forced to abandon their farms. Many of them migrated to cities or the USA in search of work.
Since then, COMSA's farmers have joined forces in order to access specialty markets and rebuild their livelihoods. They quickly learned that organic farming is more than a conversion process. So, they began developing an organic and sustainable culture, which balances the needs of business, society, and the environment. Membership has been steadily growing. About one-quarter of members are women. Many of the farmers also grow fruit and vegetables and keep cattle, pigs, poultry, and fish.
COMSA's organic production policy improves coffee quality by reviving depleted soil fertility and ending the use of harmful chemicals. COMSA pays good prices for the members? coffee. This has benefited the broader community because other traders were forced to offer higher prices to local farmers as well. The cooperative carries out all the processing: from pulping the ripe fruit to converting it to green coffee and storing it for export.
