Description

I've been working on coffee plantations for thirty years. Now, I’m 53 and mostly working alone.

I have a son who lives in the US, and a daughter in a nearby town, but she works elsewhere. During the harvest, I have people helping me out. But coffee is my passion, it’s what makes my heart beat faster. The farm is 8,5 hectares and the land is located at 1,350 to 1,450 meters. There is abundant shadow. Some of it from old pine trees, but also from papaya and bananas, plantains and lime that I planted. There are a few small cashew trees that I planted not long ago, and lots of native vegetation like liquidambar, pepitio, copalchio and guamo trees. Although I grow Pacas, Obatá, and 90, the increasingly dominant cultivar is Parainema. My coffees are SHG and are certified Fair Trade and organic.
