Edna Ventura and Rafael Ventura are cousins, lifelong friends and the producers of this microlot. In 1996, a group of producers and friends gathered to analyze the necessity of constructing a centralized wet and dry mill in their community, with a few goals in mind: creating more standardization and so more quality assurance; minimizing the environmental impact of coffee production; and better commercializing the community, to obtain better prices in local and international markets. Soon, Cocamol was born, the Cooperativa Cafetaleta Mercedes Ocotepeque Limitada. It was properly constituted in 1997 with 21 founding members and has since grown to 51 members, 21 of whom are women. Edna and Rafael both deliver coffee to, and are active members of, the Cocamol co-op. Interested in promoting good coffee in their region, they came together to create this lot (Edna contributed 18.9 quintales, and Rafael 63.78) and decided to call it Cocamol.
