Ethical Supply Chain. Los Dos Cristianos partners with two specific Co-Ops and subsequent producers in Honduras. These Co-Ops also export the product and abide by Fair trade (FLO), Organic, UTZ (Sustainable) and BIO LATINA. We then work with 2 US/EMEA based importers who can import containers at a time and are able to warehouse and deliver to your location (CIF or FOB). This gives us a unique opportunity to ensure an ethical supply chain, ensure we know the quality of the plant and education around the impact the coffee industry provides to the country of Honduras.
