RELATIONSHIP COFFEE

We have a direct relationship with this co-op. We visited this Spring and learned what is important to them. Organic practice is extremely important. Erwin, one of the farmers, explained to us that in his religion, people were made from the earth. The Maya believe that people were created because the gods wanted sacrifices to be made to them. The animals were not able to sacrifice properly so the gods attempted to make humans out of mud and wood, but both attempts failed. The gods created a flood to get rid of these attempts. They ended up making humans successfully from corn with the help of lightning from a nearby mountain. Fair Trade is also important. With the Fair Trade premium, they are able to have an on-site women’s medical clinic. The co-op also has women on staff as well as women farming members.
