I am a traditional coffee grower from the region I come from. I have about 20 years working with coffee. I am married and I have 3 children. My farm is located between two mountains and it is close to the boundary with the department of Huila.
I love taking care of the natural source of fresh water since I take the water for domestic consumption from there. I also used the pulp as a fertilizer.
