he Caballeros family collectively owns and manages a handful of farms in the mountains surrounding the town of Marcala, Honduras. One of these farms is called Finca El Puente, owned by Marysabel Caballero and her husband Moises Herrera.It's an interesting time of year for the Central American supply chain because the lives of growers are slowing down after the harvest season, while the lives of the millers and exporters are still crazy as they try to get coffee onto container ships efficiently.
 
Here's some news:
 
Marysabel Caballero of Finca El Puente is South Korea, where she is serving as a sensory judge for the Ultimate Barista Challenge! She asked for my advice on whether to participate because she was nervous about her ability, but she's an adventurer through and through and an amazing ambassador for growers, so I knew she'd be up to the task.
 
The 21st de Septiembre is using the post-harvest calm as an opportunity to do visits and training in the communities that make up the co-op in order to strengthen their membership.
