My dad gave me 6 manzanas and I bought one, it is called the fortune because you get enough coffee with those plots.
• How did your history with coffee start?:
My story begins through my dad, since he liked this crop and I was always working together with him and I also liked it. They took me to cut, not to veneer, because I was very small, although I did not work as a child I was always going to accompany my dad and my mom.
It is a crop that has always been in our lands, and we live on it, we are maintained by it. As a young producer I love my job, I’m working in my own thing and I can provide for my family. I have a wife named Walkiria Jarileth and two daughters, Crisbel jarileth and Nesveli Lanuza.
Give it the proper handling, since we are organic, we are always pending with the fertilizer, using pulp and foleos with biofertilizer.
Maintain cleanliness, do not maintain inorganic waste, and we work as recommended by all certifications.
