The Las Colinas Cooperative in El Salvador (Tacuba, Ahuachapan) is collectively family-farmed and managed by 89 members on the site of an old coffee plantation. Founded 40 years ago, each member takes on a different specialty or responsibility, from field workers to commercial director. After each harvest, profits are split among all 89 members.
Las Colinas is located near the border of Guatemala and forms part of the buffer zone for the El Impossible National Park, habitat to endangered pumas, emerald toucans, and fresh waterfalls. Las Colinas has taken steps to preserve their natural resources; they converted their coffee to organic and have invested in eco-depulpers to reduce the amount of water they use during processing.
