Since I was a child I have had a passion for growing coffee.
I like challenges and coffee cultivation presents strong challenges, it is worth working and always trying to innovate new things, I also like working with the social and ecological components around coffee cultivation.
I am the fifth generation of coffee growers in my family and have been involved in coffee cultivation for eleven years.
The farms managed by father and son, Don José Antonio and Andrés Salaverria, have always complemented each other in their responsibilities and their work on the farms, with the clear goal of diversifying their coffees and keeping up to date on the most advanced processes that occur in other countries and to make them with their coffees, in addition to their experiments.
