Sito Hartwell is located in the Municipality of Itogon. The town of Itogon, the largst municipality in Benguet by land area, is a mining town and the site of the first large-scale mining operations in the country. In 2018, Itogon was devastated by landslides due to typhoon Ompong and excessive mining activities. As an immediate aid to the community, a small team from Henry & Sons led a humanitarian mission to deliver water and food supplies to the victims of the landslides. During the visit, the team discovered that the ancestors of the miners were coffee farmers and that the community had century-old coffee trees. The team at Henry & Sons then spent the last three years transforming and helping Itogon become a coffee farming community once again.
