The Artery Coffee - Candy Pacheco
Beyond being a kind, resilient and caring coffee producer, Randolfo Pacheco is an unflinching member of a resistance movement that is peacefully defending Indigenous Xinka lands and rights against an unethical and violent Canadian owned silver mine.
Randalfo has experienced a few challenging setbacks when it came to his coffee production over the last few years, (such as coffee plant diseases) but displayed incredible determination in overcoming them, while growing beautiful and meaningful coffee and actively participating in brave acts of defiance and land defence. He is an incredible person and we look forward to many more years of supporting his cause and coffee!
