Dec. 2006--Cafe Istmo pre-farm tour

THe 2006 crop is starting to be picked by the coffee farmers now and Jason, Carlos, and Paco will be going into the mountains the week of Dec. 10 to inspect the crop and have open discussions on how to improve this years crop as the persistent rain last year really hurt the quality of coffee they had because there was no sun for them to efficiently dry the coffee..
We need to decide if buying a mechanical dryer should be done because of the very inhospitable and always changing climate can have big effects of how much money they make and their ability to consistently bring in a specialty grade product.
