La Concordia consists of the beans grown by multiple smallholder farmers in the in the state of Chiapas. A real crowd pleaser, this coffee is sweet and not too acidic, with notes of almond, caramel, and just a hint of orange.
Working in the very isolated pueblo of Nuevo Paraiso, they’ve focused on creating internal infrastrucutre the community can use, starting with a warehouse and a large nursery, out of which they distributed productive and leaf rust-resistant varieties to partner farmers at no cost, leading to massively increased productivity.
Currently, they’re working on installing their own dry mill (funded by price premiums) to strengthen the community as a whole and be able to service farmers who would otherwise have to travel far on limited roads. They’re always looking to develop relationships with smaller farmers on the outskirts of the community.
