Honduras Coffee Kids Uniocafe is produced by 33 young coffee producers— 6 women and 27 men, ages 15 through 39—from the Uniocafe Youth Committee who are participating in the Coffee Kids program.
Uniocafe is a producer association in the Ocotepeque region of Western Honduras. The umbrella organization of Uniocafe supports 28 producer groups, representing more than 1,000 coffee farmers.
Since 2007, Uniocafe has been investing in its producer network by providing training, financing and access to coffee buyers. In 2016, Uniocafe began expanding its programs to focus on empowering youth, promoting gender equity and addressing climate change. Currently, Uniocafe provides young producers with best-practices training in coffee cultivation, cupping and coffee quality, as well as processing and preparation for export. At the same time, the youth are learning how to develop strong organizational and business skills. (Learn more)
