I am married to Manuel Macias since 1972, and we have 6 children. We got the farm as an inheritage from my father. We began in coffee with only 1 hectare with 5000 coffee trees approximately. After several years of expansion, we have now 14 planted hectares. Apart of coffee we have yucca, plantain, corn and pineapple.
The farm has a natural source of fresh water, which we care very much because we get from that source, all the water we use in the house and in the wet milling process. We also have small tanks for the treatment of the residual water of the farm.
