La Vereda el Mesonis, where Blen El Messon’s farm is located, lies in the western mountain range of the department of Cauca in the town of Morales. Its altitude above sea level ranges from 1500 to 1800masl and keeps an average temperature of 19-24C which is ideal for the production of coffee.
Coffee on the farm is grown under shade of a local fruit tree, guama, as well as bananas and citrus.
As part of Cencoic, project 121’s producers’ synergy has allowed them to train in the production of quality coffee and what is reflected that today through high quality coffee, whilst maintaining the safety net of community and colleagues. Blen El Messon has been an active member since 2012.
