We met Don Eleazar through Don Román, his friend and compadre in Amatenango de la Frontera, Mexico. Eleazar’s friends and countrymen call him Don Lacho. He has a perpetual smile that radiates throughout the farm. Along with that smile are tanned hands of work and furrows on his face that speak to his years of hard work on the farm. Don Eleazar is not very orthodox, let’s say, but he gets very good results with his peculiar way of working coffee. In our frequent visits to the farm, we always enjoy the delicious tortillas made by his daughter in his tortillería, next to his house. The family is proud of the flavorful and unique coffee that they produce.
