Our Passion Project
Our Passion Project
We have been supporting coffee growers in the village of La Laguna in northwestern Honduras since 2016. Through direct collaboration, we are aiming to improve living and working conditions for the local population. In addition to fair conditions and a fair price, we are striving to make a positive impact on the lives of these people. Consumers of coffee from La Laguna know that for every cup they buy, they are not only drinking sustainably grown coffee, but also directly supporting some 300 smallholders . For every package of "Honduras La Laguna" sold, 30 cents of the purchase price goes directly to projects in Honduras. Half of the money is used in local programs to promote sustainable coffee cultivation and improve living conditions, while the other half goes directly to the farmers themselves as income.
And in order to generate the best possible help and support, we at Cremesso are not the only ones involved: together with Delizio, another coffee brand from Delica AG, we are working on the project and the constant improvement of conditions in La Laguna.
You may be wondering why we specifically chose to support the region around La Laguna. There are several reasons for this. In general, Honduras plays a crucial role in our coffee production: About one-sixth of the green coffee we buy stems from Honduran plantations. A significant proportion of this comes from the coffee farms in La Laguna. However, crime and poverty are rampant in the coffee industry. This is what we are striving to counteract at the local level.Find out more
Many of our projects support coffee farmers in improving their living and working conditions in the long term. In return, we get coffee beans from sustainable sources.Find out more
We value transparency and traceability. Our contribution counter enables you to track at any time exactly how big a difference your purchases have made for coffee farmers. The transparency of our sustainability projects is particularly important for us. Therefore our contribution counter shows you here how much money has already been raised through your help.
Market prices are often so low that they don't even cover the cost of producing the coffee. In addition to man-made challenges, coffee farmers are frequently also at the mercy of Mother Nature, for instance in the form of coffee rust, which can ruin entire crops. Direct contributions from the sale of coffee are therefore particularly important for farmers because they provide an additional income that secures livelihoods and provides a basis for long-term planning.
