Mexico, Coffee Growers

New little story now up on the site  I made for Cafe-Direct/Fair Trade of the indigenous coffee growers who form some of the coffee co-operatives in southern Mexico . During the week or so I spent with these charming and friendly people in the Chiapas region, where we followed them to their factories, co-op meetings, their plantations , villages and homes. A disarmingly hospitable people with a huge generosity of spirit despite the conditions in which they live and work bringing us the coffee we usually only get to see for the first time when it’s on the supermarket shelf at home !
