Maria and her husband Diego bought this parcel of land 12 years ago and began pursuing co ee as a way to make the farm profitable. When Diego emigrated to find work, Maria became the leader on the farm, which she cared for alongside her kids. As a woman, Maria says she realized how important it is to understand and implement good agricultural practices. Under her leadership the farm produced its first lots of specialty co ee this year.

Maria has been planning for the future on her farm as Maria’s two children have been involved in the farm and have developed a passion for growing coffee. She hopes to continue bringing them into the family business.

Maria’s thoughts on coffee producing “Working in coffee has been a good experience. I have learned to apply all the best agricultural practices on the farm and this year we had the experience of selling quality coffee for the first time. We were filled with emotion and pride in this work. Our two children are also involved with co ee and they feel the same love for the land that we do.”
