About the farm:
Ever since he was a child, Jose Rodriguez was introduced to coffee thanks to his grandfather who assigned him the role of taking care of the drying stage. The coffee-knowledge transfer continued through his father, who also encouraged him to help with the family business. He was captured by the love for coffee and later, ended up buying a portion of a neighboring farm. When his father passed away, he inherited the family’s farm and today, he and his wife are still in charge and devoted to produce fine quality green beans. Marlene, his wife, is in charge of the weighing and helps with administrative tasks during the harvest season. They employ between 4 and 8 local people during harvest and are committed to sustainable practices such as avoiding the use of herbicides, having a garbage collection project and a water treatment process.
