I am a 45 years old coffee grower, since I was a child I always was helping my father in the crops. When I grew up, I decided to change my job and I moved to Cali, but when I was 18 years old I came back to my village, I got married and currently we have 3 sons. All the members of my family are involved in the processes, activities and jobs related with the coffee culture because the are conxious of the importance of the coffee as a way for living.
In the farm we have a big biological diversity of fauna and flora. There is also a small river which crosses all the farm and it has native trees around it.
