The research compares a sample of 31 producers organically certified, with a control group of 30 conventional non-certified producers.Certification has contributed to develop and strength the human capital through the generation of technical knowledge applicable to sustainable practices. With regards to the social capital, it has been observed the consolidation of the Cooperative TriunfoVerde’s management systems.Concerning the political capital, producers recognized access to better financial terms and conditions for their productive activities. In addition, the impact in the natural capital is observed in the withdrawal of conventional agricultural practices, which reduce the contamination of soil, water and carbon dioxide emissions. In the economic field, even though certified producers benefit from price premium, they don’t obtain higher net income ( 2,582.90 USD/ha) in comparison to conventional producers ( 2,550.27 USD/ha). It is required to implement strategies to improve coffee productivity and sthrength its value added.
