Welcome to great tasting coffee!

The Rio Olancho Direct Trade Coffee Project is a partnership between the coffee growers in nine communities in Olancho, Honduras and The Carpenteros and Friends, a Christian volunteer group based in Southern Ontario, Canada. 

Rio Olancho coffee is imported as green beans, and is then roasted and packaged by Java Works Coffee in Mississauga, Ontario. The coffee is available as:

  • Medium roast, medium ground (1 lb. or 2.5 ounce packages)
  • Medium roast Whole Beans (1 lb. bags)
  • Dark Road Whole Beans (1 lb. bags)
  • Cup of Excellence Whole Beans (medium roast, 12 ounce bags)
  • Arturo Colindres 'Single Origin' Sierra de Agalta Whole Beans (medium roast, 12 ounce bags)

We can also provide in larger bags for cafes and restaurants, or as green beans for those with their own roasting capability.  Please contact us by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for further information.

Coffee is available in the Hamilton, Ontario area through the Carpenteros ( This email address is being protected from spambots.

For those in the Greater Toronto Area, or in other parts of Canada, Rio Olancho Direct Trade Coffee is also available through the online store of Java Works Coffee.

The same great coffee is available through any of these partners, and we encourage you to contact the supplier that is most convenient for you.

All participating coffee growers in the Rio Olancho Direct Trade Coffee Project are fully committed to providing the very highest quality coffee, and take part in regular training and quality control supervision through IHCAFE, the Honduran Coffee Institute. Over the past 10 years, the project has grown to include nine communities and nearly 60 coffee producers who are extremely proud to be exporting their finest coffee to Canada.

Proceeds generated by The Carpenteros and Friends through this project either flow back to the producers in the form of a premium rate for their coffee, additional training and tools, and community development projects for some of the poorest communities in Honduras.  To learn more about this project, and where you can purchase Rio Olancho coffee, please contact us by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
