Our Nahua coffee comes from three farms - Finca Husmaya managed by Rodolfo Carcamo Galindo, Finca La Puebla managed by Nicolas Martinez Almanza and La Nueva managed by Juan Manuel Chacon. Each of the farms employs about 20 people permanently working on maintaining the crop, fertilizing the soil and renewing the oldest plots. To fertilize the soil, they use fertilizer upcycled from cascara.
