About the family

Coming from El Páujil, Ramiro has the scars of displacement due to armed conflict. His parents, farmers at heart, shared the property with him until their passing. Recognizing the harmony between coffee and the unique features of the land, climate, and altitude, Ramiro opts for this lucrative crop. However, his commitment extends to protecting the forest and its rich wildlife.
