My father was a coffee grower, and I got married 20 years ago with Gerardo Collazos, another coffee producer. We had three children. Our familiar company is conformed by 3 farms, in total 25 hectares and 22 hectares in coffee. We are members of the Associative Group San Isidro y we are currently working to get the Fair Trade certification.
We do have alive barriers in the borders of the farm, to preserve the fauna and flora. There is a system for the treatment of the residual water, the pest control is mainly cultural.
