About Audias Garcia

About Audias Garcia

Audias is one of the youngest producer partners of Jesus Salazar. He has been working with Jesus for 2 harvests, 2019 and 2020. The beneficio to carry out the coffee processes was built by his father, Roman Garcia, producer also partner of Cafeologia. Roman's coffees won two places in the Cafeologo award in 2017. His father encouraged and encouraged Audias to join this partnership a lot, the following harvest coffees got very good scores and today it is Audias who are pushing new producers to join the adventure and improve their farming practices. The Audias plantation is located in the highest area of ​​the Sierra Madre de Chiapas and the coffee trees grow under the shade of chalum, gravillea, in an endemic forest of Chiapas. Jesus is, as he puts it, the zero generation of his family in coffee. Originally from Tuxtla, capital of the Chiapas region, he lives with his family in San Cristobal de las Casas. He initiated his project "Cafeologia" in 2010. Firstly as roaster, his project "Cafeologia" today brings together a coffee shop, a hotel, a quality laboratory, a cupping room, a roastery, a warehouse and a beneficio. Jesus' goal was to develop a project around coffee growing involving Mayan communities. In 2010, he began working with 4 farmers and today he is in direct contact with 140 "micro-producers" because for him it is essential that this project remains on a human scale "Caja a caja". The farmers speak Tsotsil and Tseltal (the Maya languages) and they produce very high quality nano-lots, each about 20 bags per year on 2 hectares. Far from intensive agriculture, coffee trees grow in their gardens under the shade of endemic trees like Xalum. With so little yield, coffee is not viable for these families. Jesus' approach then becomes societal, he asks each farmer how much he needs to live a year. He has to create value added coffee to pay this price. For this, the only lever is quality. Jesus is Q-processor (equivalent of the Q-Grader for processes). He brings his expertise to every farmer and sometimes the drying and the end of the process is done on the roof of the Cafeologia where are arranged african beds. The coffees are not certified but are produced on the model of organic farming. Just 1 hour drive around San Cristobal, the diversity of aromatic profiles is incredible. His vision of coffee is philosophical and humanistic. He wants above all to promote the quality of Chiapas coffees and "change the image of Mexican coffee". He surrounds himself with partners sharing his state of mind, his philosophy, his values ​​to defend a different coffee growing in Mexico, returning to a high quality that is creating value for the indigenous production communities.
