Description

History

I am a coffee grower per tradition. I am the owner of my farm since 1990. I am married and I have 3 children. I am entirely dedicated to my family and farm.

Environmental Care

I look for the preservation of flora and fauna in the farm. The depulping process is done without using water. I also use the pulp as organic fertilizer.

Coffee Processing Information

I apply chemical and organic fertilizers to the soil twice per year. Pest control is done by cultural methods (Re–Re).
