It is amazing to taste how much progress this community has made despite the challenges presented by Roya and an active volcano. Join us in supporting this start-up coffee community, and in celebrating their success in the face of adversity.
In the West of Mexico Mt. Colima, or the Volcan de Fuego, shoots out above the Sierra Madre Occidental Range. The volcano is still active, and within its eruption zone live 856 coffee farmers whose small associations or ejidos work together to export coffee under a single cooperative Intragadora. This Intragadora is made up of member organizations from communities around Colima. However, if names such as Yerbabuena, Naranjal, Remudadero, and Arrayenal don't ring a bell then just wait, because they are earning a name for themselves.
