On our first visit in early 2016, we decided to collaborate with the farm owner, E-Cafe, to build a classroom on the farm.

The farm is located in the mountains, about a two-hour drive from the nearest town of Jaltenango. This makes attending school difficult or nearly impossible for the children
who live there.

The first donation was used up by February 2016. Subsequent donations followed every year. In February 2017, we received the good news that the classroom was completed and
the children of coffee pickers could use it for classes.

Unfortunately, heavy rainfalls destroyed the classroom in 2018. However, thanks to further donations, a new school building was built in 2019.

Coffees from Mexico

Although the best known Mexican coffee comes from the three regions: Chiapas, Veracruz and Oaxaca, there are five states on which 94% of the coffee production is spread out over 700 thousand hectares; this includes the states of Puebla and Guerrero. Over 49 different climatic regions provide a great variety of growing conditions for coffee plants. From humid to dry and from cold to warm, the variation in landscapes, climates and soils differentiate aromas and flavors in the cup. Mexican coffee grows under shade trees that cover around 50% of the plants. Is hand-picked and mainly sun dried.
