Presentation of the plantation :
Several years ago, Marcala owned a large cooperative with many small producers. After its break-up, the members were left without a processing plant. It is for this reason that about sixty producers decided to unite to form the private company COMSA (Café Orgánico Marcala).
Today, more than 700 producers make up this cooperative and all the employees are producers. They all get to follow courses about coffee tasting and organic farming. The cooperative also subsidises the education of children in the community.
"Clave Del Sol" comes from Miriam Elisabeth Perez. She recalls that when she was little, her grandfather always brought his brothers and cousins to the farm, but did not like to take her with him because "girls do not go to the farm!". It is ultimately the one who took over the family farm!
She works with her husband and children on the farm and has been producing coffee for over 20 years. She represents the third generation of her family to produce coffee. Her farm, located in the village of El Rincon Marcala (La Paz), today represents 3.5 hectares of coffee trees. She produces 112 bags of green coffees last year.
Miriam Elisabeth Perez processes her coffee in the COMSA's facilities and dries her coffee in the sun. Miriam believes in organic production and defends the quality of her work. The aim is to produce organic coffee of high quality and create a heritage for her 4 children, to transmit this vision of the coffee culture with a deep respect for nature and men.
