The Meléndez family of Yoro, Honduras has been growing #coffee for 35 years. They joined TechnoServe’s MAS project to improve their #farming practices. After honing new farming skills, José Meléndez later joined the project's staff as a #community trainer and Denia Meléndez learned to become a coffee cupper. http://ow.ly/NnjB30cEQOn
