BEHIND THE LABEL
Our board President, Merling Preza shared that the Nicaraguan national bird, the Barranquero "from the valley" or Guardabarranco "keeper of the valley" is one who comes to sing in her garden. It is a bird that people in the fields interact with on a daily basis. It lives in fairly open habitats such as the shade canopy forests where Pachamama farmers grow exceptional coffee.
Farmer Owner Alexa Marin
"As women, we work in the field and we also work in our home. We hope that more than the quality of coffee, we also ensure the quality of life for our producers who form the cooperative."
Alexa Marin is a coffee farmer and the Gender Commission Coordinator at Prodecoop.
