Jaime Molina — a member of the 5 de junio cooperative that participates in the CRS CAFE Livelihoods project — took 2d place in last month’s Nicaragua Cup of Excellence competition. The lot from his Monte Cristo farm near Las Sabanas in Madriz scored 91.45 points, and will be auctioned tomorrow. The CAFE Livelihoods project has invested heavily in improving coffee quality. We can’t take credit for Jaime’s coffee, but we sure will work to figure out what exactly he is doing right and try to share it with other farmers in the project.
Congratulations, Jaime, and good luck at auction!
