The Farm Story:

The farms contributing to Triunfo Verde Co-op are located in the buffer zone of El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve. The biospheres are situated in the highlands of the Sierra Madre de Chiapas. El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve is one of the world's most diverse forest reserves. This reserve contains Mesoamerica's largest continuous cloud forest, and it serves as a refuge to thousands of plant and animal species. El Triunfo is a rare and valuable sanctuary that requires continued protection. All the coffee they produce is shade-grown, and biological corridors facilitate bird and animal migration.

Triunfo Verde Co-op comprises 346 members and is managed by Hugo Lares, with quality control supervision by Calixto Guillén. Calixto is a highly motivated leader committed to quality: He has been very excited about the micro-lot project between TFV and Cafe Imports.

What is the Women's Association for  Triunfo Verde Co-op?

The women's association for Triunfo Verde Co-op has 51 members who have come together in order to collectively face some of the issues that affect women farmers in Mexico, including gender-based domestic violence, legal obstacles to obtaining land ownership, limited opportunities to diversify the family income, fewer educational opportunities, and economic dependence on men. Specifically, the group has come together to launch a financial program for women called FinMujer (Financing of the Coffee Woman). This initiative seeks to distribute funds for farm renovation, home improvements, the establishment of savings funds, and more.
