Childhood memories and stories are what led the Morales family to look for land in
the highest areas of the Alotepeque mountain range. For places where his father in

After the coffee is harvested from the trees, we move on to the coffee processing
process. In the same farm we built a small mill, which consists of a small pulper and
a metallic solar tunnel with UV plastic and African beds inside the tunnel to dry the
The processes that we carry out in some cases are anaerobic processes of 72
