WE STRIVE FOR GROWTH & EMPOWER PRODUCERS
Best Origins Socially Responsible • Directly Sourced • Quality Tested • Roaster Friendly
Our mission is to ethically source some of the world's finest coffees and bag in manageable sizes to provide competitive prices.
We are focused on sustainability, Quality and Social Responsibility.Our Story
✅ We Focus On Roasters First
✅ We connect roasters with green coffee beans, sourcing origin, quality and price point with their needs in mind.
❌ Focus on inventory first by buying and stocking large homogenized quantities of green coffee beans and then try to SELL to roasters.
❌ Push a certain origin or quality based on their supply, not necessarily what in the best interest of roasters.
FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED
We at Copan Trade are a family owned business with headquarters in Texas since 2002. The Company traces its roots back to Honduras where Sheri and Walter Dunaway, our founders, started their coffee journey over 35 years ago, in Santa Rosa de Copan.
“Since the beginning our family was focused on establishing relationships and assisting small and medium Honduran producers. Being in the heart of Honduras’s coffee region, we know that coffee must be produced in an economically, environmentally, and socially sustainable manner if we are to continue to provide you with premium coffee.”
DONATING AND GIVING BACK
Because we deal directly and personally with every supplier, no matter how small, we are in a unique position to identify the needs of local producers and their communities, and assist them in any way we can.
Because of our humble beginning in western Honduras, the bulk of our assistance is oriented towards coffee growers’ families. Copan Trade through its Non Profit: Copan Cares has donated school supplies to growers’ children who otherwise would not have been able to attend classes, and financed elementary schools' social activities as an ongoing basis to encourage attendance.
IMPORT LOGISTICS SERVICES
We know that roasters are constantly searching for exceptional green coffee beans. Once the connection between the coffee farmer and roaster is made we help facilitate import to the US by:
Walking you through each step of the process from start to finish. Supplying the safe transportation of the green coffee beans from the farm to the roasters dock. Maintain a safe and ethical business transaction from start to finish.
PREMIUM GREEN COFFEE BEANS
Let us take you to the coffee origins where we select only the highest quality Coffee cherries which are purchased locally from producers, family planted and hand-picked as coffee beans mature at different rates. Coffee pickers must be selective with what coffee cherries they harvest, and will return time and time again to the same plant to see if last week’s unripe cherries are ready to be picked. While this process takes longer and costs more to produce, the results make for the finest bodied coffees, truly worth tasting.
The handpicked farms boast altitudes of over 4,000 ft, which is ideal for growing premium coffee beans. Mostly shade grown with dappled sunlight in the tree covered mountains, our coffee beans mature slowly with the low temperature and sunlight levels, producing the most flavourful and highest quality coffees.
The Coffee plantations help preserve the biodiversity of the rainforest, which is a natural habitat for many migratory bird species. Copan Trade encourages tourists to visit our farms within the rainforest and to see for themselves our commitment to preservation.OUR PRODUCTS
