Nery is a second generation coffee producer who inherited this parcel of land from his parents in 2010. Then, a few years later, he was able to join El Sendero Cooperative in order to market his coffee and access workshops and agronomy knowledge. This has enabled him to boost both productivity and coffee quality. “Nery’s farm is called Paya’, a word which means Birth of the River in the Popti Mayan language. It’s the name of this mountainous area where a river begins. This coffee is depulped and dry fermented at the producer’s artisanal wet mill. After a 32 hour fermentation, the coffee is washed and then placed on the patio to dry for 6 days. Nery’s wife takes a leadership role in the processing and drying of the coffee.
Nery says, “At first we faced big challenges as coffee producers because we lacked knowledge [about agronomy and post-harvest processing]. But thanks to Cooperative El Sendero we have been able to improve the quality of our coffee.”
