In 2001 the COMSA co-operative was founded with the goal of achieving social, economical and environmental sustainability for its region. The traditional farming methods of sustainable and organic farming were the foundation for many of these principles. A mixture of manure, coffee bean husks, volcanic rock and vegetation create fertile waste which is then re-used by the co-operative as soil fertiliser. COMSA places a high importance on the value of family farming, empowering working women, sharing knowledge and education.
