After 7 years working in the coffee production field, this is the first time Rodrigo participates in a Cup of Excellence competition. Before being coffee producer, he used to work for different farms performing several tasks, this allowed him to learn about coffee production.
Getting the first place was surprising for Rodrigo, “I feel honored to get the first place as I didn’t compete with the idea of winning, I wanted to know more about the event and get to know more people” says Rodrigo.
