Café Yashalum

In 1980, Mr. Gilberto Alession created Sociedad Cooperativa Industrial Cafés Yajalón, SCL, and in 1981 it was legally established with 11 founders. This allowed him to incorporate 1,119 producers and partners who handle coffee from the region of Yayalón, Chiapas, most of them from the Chol and Tzeltal ethnic groups of the North region and the jungle of Chiapas.
