Today the 5 de junio cooperative celebrates a birthday. The coop, comprised of some 500 determined farmers in the rugged Nicaraguan highland town of Las Sabanas, was a CRS partner under the CAFE Livelihoods project.
Counter Culture is helping to mark the occasion by telling the 5 de junio story and making 5 de junio’s organic Caturra Direct Trade lot its coffee of the month for June. Counter Culture is also offering for the second straight year a 5 de junio Maragogype microlot — the happy result of the cooperative’s ongoing quality experiments.
¡Feliz cumpleaños, 5 de junio!
