I started in the coffee crops since I was a kid. At the beginning I worked in small lots that my parents gave me to take care of. Several years after, I could buy new lots which I used for new coffee crops.
The agronomic labors of the coffee crops are focused in technologies which do not affect the environment. The wet milling process is done under ecological procedures.
