I am the son of a coffee producer, so I grew up between the coffee trees. Thanks to the coffee I had the chance to go to the shool and get some education. I moved to Bogota looking for a better quality of life, but after several years I decided to go back to the village where I grew up and I bought the farm I have now. Ive been married twice and I have 1 daughter from my first marriage and 2 boys from the second one.
As my farm is Rainforest Alliance and Organic Certified, I simply can not contaminate, nor destroy the fauna or flora of the farm. I take special care of the natural sources of water, and I recycle all the wastes from the house and from the wet milling process of the coffee.
