Beyond being a kind, resilient and caring coffee producer, Randolfo Pacheco is an unflinching member of a resistance movement that is peacefully defending Indigenous Xinka lands and rights against an unethical and violent Canadian owned silver mine.
Randalfo has experienced a few challenging setbacks when it came to his coffee production over the last few years, (such as coffee plant diseases) but displayed incredible determination in overcoming them, while growing beautiful and meaningful coffee and actively participating in brave acts of defiance and land defence. He is an incredible person and we look forward to many more years of supporting his cause and coffee!

A letter from producer Randolfo Pacheco (translated from Spanish):
Greetings from Guatemala, Sansupo township, Mataquescuintla, Jalapa. Thank you
for supporting our project, Cafe Colis Resistencia. I’m happy to know that you carry a
little of my efforts with you.
Although these are complicated time, the passion for coffee is more intense than
years before. We dedicate the time and love necessary to our coffees without ruling
out the sacrifices and risks that we live day by day. It’s obvious that our objective isn’t
only to improve the quality of life, but we are also committed to defending our land
and our natural resources, which isn’t something easy.
The important thing is to know that we have friends with a conscience who are
interested to be part of our team. Thank you Brendan Adams of Semilla Coffee and
all who bought our coffee.
Sincerely, Randolfo Pacheco
