I am a coffee grower since year 2000. I have my own farm which I received as a inheritance from my parents. I live in the farm with my family, formed by my wife, and beautiful children who go to the primary school of the village. We all are committed with the production of good quality coffee, in order to obtain better incomes that allow as to improve our living standards.
We take care of the water sources, avoiding the contamination. We love the fauna of the farm, the birds and other wildlife. To preserve them, we dont cut the native trees nor allow the people to burn them.
Coffee Processing Information
We follow the suggestions of the technical from the federation to produce a high quality coffee. The depulping is done without water, fermentation takes the right time and we use fresh water in the washing process. We sell all the coffee from the farm to the Cooperative of Coffee Growers of Huila.
