Mr. Armando Bautista is a friendly man, who have a wonderful and close family. Some of his sons are working with him at the farm, which were very affected by rust. Despite of this he have an amazing land to cultivate. He was motivated to participate in CoE by the IHCAFE staff and a very close friend who offered to prepare his coffee as special.
He said: Coffee for me is a tradition which goes back to my mother, when I was young he bought a farm, and we cultivated it with few plants in the place where I’m living now. Currently I bought a farm close to my house in a high land, it is beautiful and appropriate to coffee, and I also have a coffee nursery garden where I provide others, plants of the varieties that they ask.
