Story

Cosecha Partners works with smallholder farmers to promote perennial agroforestry systems in cacao, macadamia and coffee. These systems integrate tropical tree species, including timber and fruit trees, with cacao, macadamia, coffee and other understory crops. By protecting trees and diversifying their production, smallholder farmers can increase their household income over the short and medium-term. In addition, sustainable timber production allows farmers to build a long-term savings plan. Through Cosecha Partners, farmers have access to credit, organic inputs and to genetic materials produced in community-led clonal gardens. They also receive training and technical assistance on sustainable and regenerative agricultural practices. Cosecha’s team of agronomists work alongside participating farmers throughout the year to ensure quality, productivity, and continuous improvement. Mila is one of the three premium fine flavour types specially selected by Cosecha Partners for its flavour characteristics.
