MEET THE FARMER

7th place winner of the 2022 Presidential National Tournament.

Senda Salvaje, is a farm located 42 kilometers from the city of Caranavi. It is a company, dedicated to expressing the high quality of coffee beans that nature can offer. In addition, they strive to produce coffee that is friendly to nature, as they care about the environment, animals, and the livelihoods of their workers.

Carmelo Yujra, runs this venture with his family. He belongs to the second generation of coffee growers in the Caranavi municipality. His father, along with other families, were the first to dedicate themselves to this noble crop commercially.

For Carmelo Yujra, Senda Salvaje has brought him much satisfaction. He has enjoyed getting to know people from different nationalities. They are all dedicated to the coffee industry and currently one of the best quality coffee producers in Bolivia.

Carmelo Yujra and his family still have many challenges to face. Among them, working with high-quality varieties and the great desire that his children continue with the Senda Salvaje venture.

MEET THE FARMER

4th place winner of the 2022 Presidential National Tournament.

Mr. Angel, his wife and their two children have been producing coffee for five years, cultivating the Castillo variety. In recent years, he found how the Geisha variety began to predominate in quality and price in the different competitions, which motivated him to cultivate the Geisha variety, achieving it’s first fruits this year.

Mr. Angel, says that growing the Geisha variety in his community is a unique challenge. The coffee must ferment up to 28 hours to achieve a good wash. He thinks this is because, despite being at an altitude of 1350 meters above sea level, the environment has a cold climate.

He works in the coffee plantation with the hope of being able to give his family the comforts and above all, and allow his children to study. He is very happy and pleasantly surprised to have managed to be among the best coffee producers in Bolivia.

WHY CAFE KREYOL?

We believe farmers should get paid based on the quality of their product and we practice this belief by paying up to 300% higher wages than what Fair Trade requires.

This Direct Trade system, that is now the backbone of Cafe Kreyol, believes that quality and sustainability are parallel.

Our story continues as we work to alleviate poverty in rural coffee growing regions, one cup at a time.
