Union San Pedro

Union San Pedro unites eight sub-associations representing communities surrounding San Pedro El Alto in Oaxaca's Sierra Sur region. Under the leadership of Salomon Garcia, the association consists of around 180 coffee-producing families. It was Salomon who played a key role in founding UNTAO, a cooperative-owned exporter and dry mill, which handles coffee processing in Oaxaca city.

In recent years, Union San Pedro has focused on addressing issues faced by Oaxacan coffee farmers. They've funded experimental farms, improved coffee nurseries, and initiated reforestation with 'edible forests' to enhance land health and generate additional income streams. Furthermore, the association aims to combat youth migration by creating job opportunities, offering a solution to the aging population of coffee producers. The coffee produced in this region is a blend of Mundo Novo and Pluma Hidalgo varieties, both known for their unique qualities.
