Carlos and Edwin Garcia Martin

As posted here Finca Vista Hermosa lost their farm manager and his son recently. Travelling back to the farm with the salary for the farm workers road bandits murdered Carlos and Edwin. It's a terrible tragedy and it has touched the coffee community greatly. Coffeegeek has written an article about Carlos after talking with Edwin Martinez of FVH: Click here to read it

Carlos' wife, Juana is now a widow and left with 11 children. Edwin has set up a fund to support the family left behind. If you would like to help out you can donate directly here (secure online payment)

Lastly I just want to link to a comment from one of our readers, Neil, that we really appreciated.
