Helping ally Honduras promote education, TSC Hondureño Small Farm Coffee gives back to 3 local secondary schools


Famous for its mild and smooth taste, medium roast TSC Hondureño Small Farm Coffee has earned rave reviews since hitting shelves three years ago; and on top of that, more stories and acts of kindness are behind the scenes. Just on June 25 at 10 AM local time in Honduras (June 26 at midnight in Taiwan), 'Las Delicias' secondary school is officially open. According to TSC, it is the second school built in Honduras by Taisugar and IMPCT, an international nonprofit organization; the third school is soon to operate. TSC has never marketed a product combining multiple acts of goodwill since every cup of coffee helps every highland small farmer and cultivates hope and future of every remote student in Honduras.

In 2017, TSC imported coffee beans at reasonable prices directly from Honduran small coffee farmers. It reduces intermediary costs; in addition, Taisugar and IMPCT, a social enterprise, jointly contribute a portion of proceeds from the coffee trade to help build local schools, taking solid actions to support local small coffee farmers and remote education. "TSC Hondureño Coffee has its own stories and concepts," TSC stressed.

"Because of rugged landscape and resource scarcity, it takes 4 hours for rural children to the nearby school, and most local families are financial vulnerable so as to have kids no choice but to drop out of school," TSC said. In order to improve local remote education, TSC cooperated with IMPCT to help build local schools through fair trade coffee. 'Las Delicias' is the first secondary school in the community which offers 5-year educational programs, following on from elementary schools and preparing for college education. Through the 'Community and Leadership Development' project, school leads students to apply what they have learned, solve problems, improve the community, and further raise overall living standards. 

"Las Delicias is the second school that TSC and IMPACT have jointly established, and the first one Los Izotes was founded in August 2018," added TSC, noting that the third school will be operating soon. There are about 20-30 students in each school, ages 12 to 18, and each one of them is promising to revive local community. 

TSC Hondureño Small Farm Coffee has a mellow yet delicate taste; more importantly, it is a coffee with stories, flavor, and kindness. As TSC coffee truck has toured around Taiwan these years, it not just satisfies coffee experts, but also receives support and goodwill from customers. TSC hopes the coffee could build bridges with our ally Honduras, and delivers acts of goodness and positive influence to the residents. TSC also invites customers continuously support TSC Hondureño Coffee to give love back to local small farmers and children together, giving those rural kids far away on the other side of the ocean good prospects for the future.
