“Otto and Mayra Higueros, the uncle and niece owners, really understand that coffee isn’t just a business and that it can be used as a tool to build something beautiful. All of our conversations were about the workers, the environment, the community, and the coffee. There’s so much unrealized potential coffee can have when its vision encompasses the communities and neighbors next door.

About 60% of what they wet mill comes from their own land. This means that 40% of what they process comes in from smallholder farmers around their community. Finca La Union is using their platform and opening it up to surrounding community so that together they can all benefit. When Finca La Union receives better prices and opportunities, the community as a whole benefits. To keep this momentum moving forward, they’ve set really high standards in maturation, plant health education and maintenance, and in varietal selection. These standards help to promote good farming practices and good coffee which enables La Union to build good relationships with buyers. ” -paraphrased, Ryan C of Yepocapa Coffee
