In the year 1920 my great-grandfather Valentín Villatoro Ventura started to plant Typical coffee and Bourbon, then my grandfather Onofre Efraín Villatoro López continued to do it, followed by my mother and father Víctor Gildardo Villatoro Argueta.
It has been the family tradition, and now I, Rolando Villatoro, are the fourth generation in this beautiful job.
