We first visited Bella Vista in December 2012. We work with the 9 families of Bella Vista to improve their quality of day-to-day life. Instead of paying them one lump-sum for a year's work, we pay them monthly. In exchange for a higher price from us, they only pick the ripest fruit off the tree.
These farmers have never used chemicals to treat their coffee. The coffee is naturally processed, which uses the least amount of energy of all processing methods.
