Don Miguel have been producing coffee for the last 8 years in a farm he rents. Los Laurels farm is a 2 1⁄2- hectare estate planted with 6000 coffee trees which are mainly Castillo variety. It is located at 1600 m.a.s.l in the municipality of La Mesa, Cundinamarca.
He was born into a family of traditional farmers and does not have much experience in growing coffee. 8 years ago, a friend of Miguel Angel told him about the benefits of producing coffee and receiving a better income.
He is in charge of the maintenance of his farm. He has six kids but none of them
lives on the farm, they all have different jobs.
Before becoming a part of the Neighbors & Crops program, he used to sell his coffee to different buyers in the village of Cachipay.
With Neighbors & Crops program we can support him with the infrastructure and labour needed to process his coffee. Doing so, he can get better prices and have more time to invest in other business.
