    El Mezcal is a beautiful example of the specialty coffee industry taking small scale producers from selling on local markets to being represented for their own individual quality. E-Cafe Chiapas is an organization of growers who started out as an exporter in 2007. They organize this microlot that is produced by 12 small scale growers who had previously sold their coffee into a larger regional blend. E-Cafe hosted the farmers who contribute to El Mezcal at their research farm, Finca Las Chicharras, in 2016 to learn growing and processing techniques for specialty coffee. Then in 2019, the E-Cafe team helped El Mezcal build their own raised beds for drying coffee, as they were previously drying it in their yards.
