Indigenous community leader, Cruz Perez
Cruz Perez Pablo is the leader of the ASDEFLOR association (Coffee Flower Development Association), a tiny collective of just 30 members, all of whom belong to the ancient Mam Mayan indigenous community, a civilization that has existed since approximately 2000 BC. Spoken by half a million people in specific Guatemalan regions, the Mayan language, Mam, continues to be the main language locals use to share knowledge about specialty coffee. Discover the results behind the driving force of Cruz Perez, the indigenous group's leader who invested in the construction of processing and drying facilities to make this incredibly special Guatemalan coffee.
