I have born in year 1966 in the Zarzal village, municipality of Patia ( Cauca ). I have been a coffee grower since 1986. I started with 4500 trees. I have the support of my entire family in the farm (wife and 5 children).
The farm is 100% semishade grown. There is plenty of plantain trees in the crops. We also have an ecological wet milling process and a parabolic sun drier.
