Description: The producers behind La Lucha Single Village Coffees have certainly lived La Lucha—the fight, the daily struggle to persevere in spite of enormous challenges—since the Roya outbreak in 2013. The disease destroyed crops, reducing productivity and quality and devastating livelihoods. As a result, many cooperatives dissolved, leaving communities of stalwart growers who refused to give up production without market access. We named the La Lucha Oaxaca coffees that come from these non-cooperative smallholder farmers Single Village to recognize their resilient communities and immense dedication to quality production despite the challenge of Roya. To support their entrepreneurship and bring their excellent coffee to market, we have set up a system to collect parchment coffees directly from these producers and offer quality premiums to the individual communities of farmers.
