Community drives Industry
Mauricio Rosales' farm, La Maravilla, is not one you stumble upon accidentally. When he purchased the farm from the legendary El Injerto Estate he had to cut a road, by hand, from the granite face of the mountain. It's now legendary in coffee circles, and the precarious drive up is a fitting gauntlet to prove your commitment to seeking out the fantastic coffee awaiting you at the top.
He is a "community Pillar." When he carved a road out of the granite mountain his farm sits on, he continued it to the indigenous community above. He is looking to run electricity to his farm and continue it up to these same people.
