I am a native of the municipality of Toledo, since I was in my mother`s womb I was surrounded by coffee trees, because my parents were coffee producers since they were little, they taught me since my first years all the relative about planting coffee.
My farm “El Silencio” is located in the village Sabana Larga in Toledo municipality; I am very happy in this land because is my born place 56 years living here and there is already 33 years since I am the owner thanks to my parent’s inheritance.
My wife Maria Nelly, my son Sergio and my grandchildren Samuel 3 years old are my life and big support to the Enterprise named “El Silencio”; thanks to god is highly productive and give us immense joy, because is with coffee that my family is strong and stay together.
Being a coffee grower is not just a job, it is all for me, is all what I am and I want to keep growing coffee the rest of my life, taking care of my soil and nature with love, so the coffee I am producing is always the best of Colombia and the world wide.
