HIS STORY

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.

ON THE MAP

El Mango is located in the beautiful area of Amatenango de la Frontera in the state of Chiapas, Mexico. The locals say that this is where Mexico ends and Guatemala begins. At 1,650 meters above sea level, Don Eleazar and his family produce a coffee noted for its structure and definition. The elevation and weather conditions contribute to the complex flavor profiles year after year.

THE FARM

Diana Gómez, chief agronomist at CAFEÓLOGO, has developed a long-standing relationship with Don Eleazar and his family. She has studied their meticulous work and advised them each year to improve the quality of their coffees. Don Eleazar is unorthodox and driven. His coffee reflects his personality. He appreciates the value of having sustainable relationships with clients and partners. He continues to prosper because he is able to invest in his farm, his family and his community with the help of CAFEÓLOGO. Yet as he focuses on farm, family and community, Don Eleazar maintains his unique, affable personality. Smiling and laughing through each harvest.
