ABOUT

Our partner Jesus Salazar, Cafeologo, developed in 2010 in Chiapas a coffee growing project involving the Mayan communities. He works directly with 140 micro-producers who cultivate high quality coffee produced under the shade of the Mexican primary forest. Far from intensive production, each farmer produces about 20 bags per year. Jesus, Q-processor, accompanies them on the technical side of the process to create high-quality nano-batches, the best that we have tasted in Mexico for a long time!

The  Benefecio Comunitario Sibactel  is located in the Tenejapa region. The Mayan inhabitants who live there belong to the Tseltal community which is extremely shy. Today, there are 70 farmers partners of Cafeologo. Since the 2020 harvest, coffee has been bought in cherries at the same price of parchment for 2 reasons:
1> Strongly encourage selective harvesting
2> Better remunerate farmers

THE TERROIR OF TENEJAPA


Benefecio Sibactel is located in the Tenejapa region. The Mayan inhabitants who live there belong to the Tseltal community which is extremely shy. It took a long time for the 70 farmers to engage with Jesus Salazar, our partner Cafeologo. In the Tsotsil community of Beneficio San Pedro in Aldama, the lever to increase quality was quickly put in place: buy cherries rather than parches at the same price. This strongly encourages selective harvesting. This system was first implemented in this beneficio during 2020 harvest. Before that, farmers were selling in parchments because it was difficult for them to trust quickly and any new initiative had to prove its worth. Jesus worked longtime to build this trust. This beneficio does not act as a purchasing center but it is a gathering place where training is given to fight against diseases (Broca, Ojo de gayo) or to improve agricultural practices (pruning coffee trees, etc.). To become a true partner of this community, you have to be part of it. Much more than a coffee partner, Jesus and his team participate in religious festivals, the corn festival, and they help them to manage all types of problems such as problems of access to water for example.
