The small region of Huehuetenago is home to famers of wheat, potatoes, sugarcane, barley and coffee. One of these farming families is the Mauricio Tello’s, producing just 1,000 bags per year of syrupy-sweet coffee cherries. Although coffee remains the strongest and most valuable crop in Huehuetenago, there is still a reportedly high occurrence of regional poverty. For our part we provide coffee premiums to the farmers that are well above market price or even Fair Trade recommendations.
