ABOUT

El Santo comes from the Veracruz region in southern Mexico.
Our partner, La Laja, is a Mexican coffee production company present in southern Mexico with three production sites, in Puebla, Veracruz and Chiapas. La Laja brings together several farms in these 3 regions. La Laja is Rainforest Alliance, UTZ (Coffee, Cocoa and Tea Sustainability Certification Program) and 4C certified (certification that works for sustainable supply chains in coffee and improved living standards for farmers).
The company has also developed social-economic programs such as the production of seedlings delivered to producers, training, loans and production participations. Regarding societal topics, La Laja works to develop leisure activities for the most precarious households, develop mutual aid in the community and education.

In the Veracruz region, La Laja has a wet beneficio with a production capacity of 850,000 kilos of cherries per day. Fully washed process has been mechanized and it reduces water consomption by 500% compared to the traditional process. 
La Laja is present in 42% of the production areas of Veracruz and has more than 3,000 producers. 

THE TERROIR OF HUATUSCO

The Huatusco terroir offers a particularly rich volcanic soil which, coupled with the high altitudes, provides all the conditions necessary for obtaining a very fine quality coffee. Our partner Don Pepe, a local Mexican company, promotes the region’s coffee industry by exporting coffee from local farms, thereby also ensuring perfect traceability. Producers throughout Mexico sell their coffee in parchment form. The only exception is the micro region of Huatusco, which sells it as cherries for cultural and traditional reasons. Don Pepe therefore buys all ofits coffee as cherries in a country where this is the exception to the rule!
