History of the Farm:
I learn the cultivation of coffee trough my parents. They cultivated coffee in the past and I inherit the farm from them. I work the farm with my family and we have pacas, Bourbón and Pacamara varieties.
The coffee that I select to participate in the Cup of Excellence program is a Pacamara variety and it was processed as honey.
This was my first time participating in the Cup of Excellence program, for four years I have been selling my coffee through intermediaries but they have fool me with the prices.
I decided to name the farm “La Bendición” because thanks to the farm and the hard work of my family we have survived and today we’re taking a different product of specialty coffee, I hope one day I can sell my coffee in good prices and move forward with my family.
