WE LOVE OUR CO-OP FARMERS

GET TO KNOW OUR FARMERS

Eraldo Garcia

Finca El Maguey is located in the community of El Tablon, Cabanas. This farm owes its peculiar name to the maguey plants, which are abundant in this area, and were used by the indigenous ancestors of this land as thatched roofing for their houses.

In the year 2010, Eraldo decided to plant 2,000 coffee trees of the icatu varietal, taking advantage of the bountiful natural water sources in the area during the rainy winter season. Overall Eraldo has over 9000 coffee trees.

Eraldo is a third generation coffee farmer. He learned coffee production from his father, who transmitted much of his passion for coffee and farm techniques to his son.

Eraldo has been a member of COMSA since 2012.  In his time with Comsa he states that he has "been able to learn much about the organic agriculture, from microbiological fertilizer to special preparation, to COMSA's philosophy and lifestyle 'La Finca Humana' (Human Farm)."

"As a member of COMSA, I am committed to excellence, which allows me to improve quality, productivity and care for the land."

WE EMPHASIZE SUSTAINABILITY

ELECTRICITY

One day, it occurred to Larry that every time he turned on a light or booted up his computer, he was voting for removing mountain tops in W. Virginia to fuel coal-fired power plants. That's not what we want, so we went gonzo to reduce our electrical use (we're still working at it).

ZERO WASTE

We do our best to achieve zero waste. From composting our food waste, recycling, and reusing what we can.

RAINWATER

We have 5 cisterns around the beanplant, totaling 2,500 gallons. We use them to run our bathrooms and water our gardens helping to conserve water!
