Fair Trade Cuatro Hermanos coffee is a special micro-lot produced by a group of brothers who are members of Unión Ramal Santa Cruz. Their farms are located in Colonia Buena Vista. Unión Ramal Santa Cruz was founded in 2001 and has 604 members living in 6 communities within the municipality of La Concordia, Chiapas, Mexico. Coffee is grown on small family-owned farms in the Sierra Madre mountain range along the eastern edge of El Triunfo biosphere reserve, which is home to more than 800 plant species and 390 bird species. Farmers process coffee with their own micro-wet mills and dry the coffee in the sun on patios before transporting the coffee in parchment to a centrally located dry mill facility where the coffee is prepared for export. Unión Ramal Santa Cruz is also completing construction on a production plant that will convert cow manure into concentrated organic fertilizer.
