Zongolica – WPZ
“Woman Power Zongolica!” This coffee was grown and produced by 20 women in the Zongolica region of Veracruz, Mexico. Grown at 1,250–1,700 masl, this coffee is a combination of Caturra, Catuai, Sarchimor, and Marsellesa varieties. The coffee was pulped with hand-cranked de-pulpers, washed, and then dried on patios for 15 days.
Coffee farms in Zongolica are agro-ecosystems, and intercropping and forest conservation are among the practiced tactics.
By working with NKG BLOOM, these women producers are also offered services that enable long term sustainability and profitability such as financing, seedlings, agronomy and business training, information services, and access to markets and new coffee technologies.
