POR MÁS CAFÉ PROJECT
Por Más Café is a collaborative effort between Exportadora de Café California, FIRA (a Federal Government Institution for agricultural credits) and other government institutions and sponsors. The initiative aims to bring increased yields, innovative farming methods and more sustainable livelihoods to all coffee farmers. Their aim is that all participants: coffee producers, government and other entities, contribute to the renew coffee plantations in order to produce more coffee in Mexico.
Por Más Café offers training in modern farming techniques, including disease control and access to high-yield and disease-resistant plants, as well as access to seedlings, fertilizer, certification practises, financing and education, which is repaid in coffee. The programme also educates about and encourages ecological farming practices to help prevent damage to the surrounding landscape & wildlife.
The programme was created in 2015, in response to the roya (leaf rust) crisis. The producers have thrived within the programme—improving their yields, their cup quality and the financial viability of their farms and ultimately their families for years to come.
