Libardo Bustos Rojas is a man of strong nature, characterized by its strength and value to start any project. He grew up among coffee crops within a small family, with parents who raised their two children thanks to coffee growing.
From his childhood, he remembers when he alternated his primary school with coffee growing and harvesting, what allowed them to meet basic needs.
This coffee-growing man was born in Gaitania, 51 years ago. He currently spends his time alternating visits to his coffee plantations with a space for family: his wife and his three daughters, who live in the city of Ibagué; they came out of Gaitania looking for a better education.
As to Cup of Excellence, Mr. Libardo says these competitions are very important for improving life conditions at the personal and community levels. “One must continue doing things well and taking part.”
