I was born in the farm where I live today. My father bought this farm 30 years ago. We live in the same house, my parents, my brother, two sisters and my wife. I am 100% committed with the production of quality coffee. I go to the training meetings with the Extension Service and I am currently the secretary of the association of Specialty Coffees of the Village.
The water source is protected by a native forest that we take care of. The pulp of the coffee is used as organic fertilizer. We have plantain trees between the coffee crops.
