3 Years After Hurricane Maria, Coffee Farmers Rebuild in Puerto Rico

When Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico in September 2017, many coffee farmers saw their life’s work disappear overnight.

Since then, TechnoServe and its partners have teamed up to help restore the island’s coffee industry and support thousands of farmers.
