About the farm:
The farm El Poste is located in the El Volcan community, Dipilto municipality. The price of the coffee in the 80 was really low and I had to diversify my farm by cultivating other crops and assure an income source. It is already 28 years that I am owner of this farm. I have 8 mz of land for coffee production and this year I harvested 90 QQ. The varieties that I have are: caturra, Bourbón and Arabica.
