I have been a coffee grower for more than 10 years. However our farm la Esperanza was an inheritance that my have got 5 years ago. Once we received the land, we started renewing the crops, and step by step we built the house we live now. I am a grower dedicated to my family and my farm. I like producing quality coffee.
There is a natural source of fresh water in the farm which we love, because we take the water we need from there. We dont cut the native forest and we have a good handling of the soils. We take good care of the nature and it is possible to see in our farm.
