From the Road, Again: 21st de Septiembre Co-op
Counter Culture Coffee's Sustainability & Producer Relations Manager Kim Elena Bullock emailed a dispatch yesterday from Oaxaca City, Mexico, where she wrote after visiting with farmers from the 21 de Septiembre co-operative in Zaragoza, Mexico, and the surrounding region. Her last trip to the area, in January of 2008, was a short one, so she was grateful to have an extended period of time up in the highlands to tour farms and talk about quality with groups of growers.
Kim Elena reports on sharing photos and information with farmers and on the proliferation of cupping in the region.
