Jose Francisco Villeda Torres--known affectionately as Panchito--is one of the founding members of the Capucas Co-op and one of our closest long-term producers.
The autonomy of his farm and its journey from being a co-op member to trading directly is a cooperative success story. In 2011, Panchito entered a bag of coffee in the co-op’s competition and won first place. Since then he has grown to producing up to 30 bags a year and slowly built his own micro-mill, improving it incrementally. We have bought his coffee every year since 2011.
