Cafe Campesino Donates to Fondo Paez in Colombia

Written by nema on Jul 26, 2011 in BLOG |

Luis Carlos Mestizo, current president of Fondo Paez' board of directors and Monika Firl, producer relations manager for Cooperative Coffees. Mr. Mestizo is holding a letter from Cafe Campesino that announces a donation to the producer cooperative.

 In an effort to show support for its coffee producing partners, Café Campesino launched a fundraiser for Fondo Paez farmers’ cooperative after a particularly devastating coffee harvest.  The donation was presented last month during a Cooperative Coffees Farmer-to-Farmer trip to Colombia.  Cooperative Coffees, the green bean importing cooperative of which Café Campesino is a founding member, was selected by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to lead technical assistance trainings for coffee farmers around the world.  Learn more about Cooperative Coffees’ Farmer-to-Farmer trip to Bolivia in May where Café Campesino’s Tripp Pomeroy volunteered.
