Santiago Ixcuintepec, Mixe

A very high altitude Indigenous coffee farming community who lives in a very remote area, and whose only crop is coffee.. We are currently teaching them newer techniques to help there crop of organic coffee.. They only lack the capital to buy some small hand tools, which were in the process of doing now. They are extremely hospitable and extremely giving of what little the have.. Due to heavy rains during the harvest last week they are currently having a hard time to salvage a crop for this years income, because there coffee is falling off the trees.. But they remain optimistic and excited about their project and really want to work to improve their land and soil which will improve theire crop.
