Pluma Hidalgo

Dave, Jason, and Pastor Armando have just arrived in Pluma Hidalgo.
This is a world famous coffee growing area at 4500ft, with slopes overlooking Pt. Escondido... but high enough up for an eternal spring like climate... This is at a brand new internet cafe around a 400 year old town square...
The hurricane Paulina destroyed most of all the big coffee farms in 1997 so the town has shrunk alot due to high unemployement.. Almost all the small farmers still exist, but the large coffee farms have been abandoned due to destruction of crops and the jungle is starting to take over again.. It is a gorgoues town which is lushly forested and rich in coffee, culture, and Zapotec history.... The opportunities are endless!!
