THE STORY

The Story
Finca La Innovación is the project of third-generation farmer Mauricio Peñalba. As implied by the naming of the farm, Mauricio is determined to improve production, biodiversity and processing standards. Growing fruit and pine trees amongst the coffee has created a unique micro-climate, home to native birds and also generating useful organic matter to be re-purposed as fertiliser.

Having worked with the COMSA (Café Orgánico Marcala) cooperative team to develop his own organic compost Señor Peñalba has seen the quality and consistency of his coffee dramatically improve. Seeking to differentiate his small production further he is now experimenting with natural processing, saving water and offering intensely fruit-forward coffees.

The Details
Starting in 2001 with 69 local producers COMSA (Café Orgánico Marcala) set out to improve their communities coffee and livelihoods through sustainable organic production. Now they represent over 1,200 members and provide training in organic farm regeneration, water management and wildlife conservation. The improved quality and prices continue to motivate producing families and act as a beacon of inspiration as to the long-term sustainability of organic specialty practices.
