Luis Choquehuanca is another one of the farmers who are part of Agricafe’s Sol De La Mañana program. Luis is a friendly, soft spoken man, married with two
kids. His farm is located in a remote, mountainous area a couple hours drive from Caranavi, through winding roads and steep climbs. The Sol de La Mañana program was created as a way to educate and train local producers with the skills necessary to improve the quality of their farms. It is a strict program that requires a lot of commitment by the producers. However, by doing so, these farmers are able to produce higher quality coffees with more yield providing them with better prices for their crops allowing them to provide a better life for their families.
This is Luis’ third year in the program and we have been so impressed by his commitment to following the strict standards set out by the program. This is a very unique lot that was separated and processed differently.
