La Yerba is a collection of smallholder farms found on the northern side of the extinct Cerro San Juan Volcano in the Mexican state of Nayarit. The Women's Floral is a specially selected crop produced by the female members of ASTAL who provide a system of premiums for coffee produced by women, they have eight female members and their president - Ms Andrea Flores.

 

Each member is part of an Ejido, which is a community composed of communal lands designated for agricultural production where each joint landowner/farmer has individual rights to a parcel of land. The rights to the land can continue indefinitely and be passed on to their children, as long as it is under consistent cultivation which is why the La Yerba community farms both coffee and avocados, with one harvest immediately following the other. 

 

For this natural process coffee, the cherry is partially dried on site before being taken to the Arrocera Wet Mill for final drying. It is then transported to El Duende Dry Mill, located in the nearby town of Compostela, where it is hulled, cleaned, sorted, graded and then bagged for export.The resulting coffee is incredibly unique and packed full of natural sweetness and complex Aromas.
