Puerto Rico Department of Agriculture

The Department of Agriculture began supporting the nascent specialty coffee industry in Puerto Rico. I hosted a large delegation of government officials and farmers in Hawai‘i for a week. I offered several seminars and toured them around the Hawaii coffee industry, including visitations to farms and mills. In connection with that visit, I toured Puerto Rico’s coffee industry for a week to assess its status and to offer suggestions for further developing and supporting their specialty coffee industry. The report became the basis of the Department’s plan for the following 5 years.
