About the family

José and his family, originally from San Vicente del Caguán, left behind Doncello in search of new opportunities, finding El Diamante farm. They have been displaced and victims of the armed conflict, but that has not stopped them from acquiring this farm, advised by a brother. Although his parents, who were farmers, do not live with him, José continues with the passion they instilled in him for cultivating cocoa and coffee, which today also symbolizes the protection of the forest, water, and wildlife.
