Notes from the curator

This farmer cooperative sprung out of a fairly recent land reform movement, which enabled farmers to have relatively large plots. Mejillones producers own 4-8 hectares, (10-20 acres) which is large in terms of small-scale coffee farmers. Wet processing is done individually on site, and once the coffee parchment has been fully sun-dried on patios, the producers bring their sacks to the Mejillones central warehouse. 10% of Mejillones profits go to community education and healthcare programs.
