As the farm starts: Through the AID-IHCAFE Project in the 1980s What do you think is the secret of your success? Being an innovative producer and applying techniques to our farm. We put our best efforts to our work and transmit it to our workers. We apply all the wet processing methods recommended by the IHCAFE to maintain the quality of our coffee. How does it feel to be a winner in the Cup of Excellence? Its an honor for my region and my country. That communicates that in our municipality we have very good quality coffee to offer to our buyers.

In recent years we had participated but were unable to enter the competition. This time we were given the opportunity and our coffee was a winner. I feel very proud to be a coffee producer.
