CONEXH’s General Manager is Carlos Mejia, an engineer also known as 'Chollo'. Born and raised among coffee plantations in his native Tutule, he is the driving force behind their operations from farm, processing and preparation to export.
The cooperative has integrated the processing of fresh harvested coffee, both with wet processing and a distinctive traditional sun drying process. This is carried out under the passionate care of the founder and father of 'Chollo', Mr. Mario Mejía Martinez, a former employee of the Honduran Institute of Coffee (IHCAFE).
