Jamie Clark and Les Stoneham along with other interested people in Ohio, Indiana, and Mississippi are going down to Santa Maria de Jesus, Guatemala again to continue their work with the farmers that bring us the wonderful La Amonia Hermosa coffee. Les Stoneham, founder of Deeper Roots Development and Vienna Coffee House's barista trainer, has been working with these farmers for the past five years, and just this October the now 20 farmers have developed their own government-recognized co-operative. We are very proud of their hard-work and coordination to make this happen.
We are very excited to be able to go back to down to Guatemala, help with the harvest, continue the conversation and planning of the beneficio (coffee-processing plant), and visit with the farmers. If you would like to receive updates from the field or want to know more about the story behind the delicious coffee please follow us at http://www.laarmoniahermosa.com
