Mario Santiz López was born in Chiapas, in the San José Buena Vista I community. From a very young age his parents taught him how to grow coffee.
His love for coffee continued throughout the years and eventually decided to buy his own parcel in Vista Hermosa with two hectares at a 1400 meters above sea level.
The parcel he bought had been severely hit by the coffee rust so he decided to replant it with a coffee rust resistant variety, that also happens to be a high-yielding variety: Sarchimor.
As part of the sustainability program Por más Café, our sister company (ECC)’s technicians supported Mario with fertilization plans, farming practices and disease management.
A testament to his singular mindset, Mario has been able to achieve exceptional results on his farm as well as in the cup and is now confident enough to enter the Cup of Excellence program.
VISTA HERMOSA LOCATION
Mario Santiz’ coffee is a spectacular washed coffee that shows the fantastic potential of Mexican microlots.
