06.16.2014

One of the most compelling stories for us at Peace Coffee is the story of our origin. If you’ve ever met me, you’ve likely heard me explain that we were born out of late-night conversations between Mexican coffee farmers and our parent organization, the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP).

Producer Gathering in Honduras

The purpose of the trip was to participate in an event hosted by the Comsa Cooperative for producers and roasters to share information and learn best practices for combating coffee leaf rust.
