A Message From Martin Galeas
“My father gave me as inheritance an area of land so I could start growing coffee. At the beginning I was using the area only for growing corn and beans, then little by little I went searching for other jobs and started earning money. With a lot of effort and work, I earned enough money to start growing coffee and to produce enough to start selling as a small producer. Back then I used to sell on cherry to a buyer of the zone.
I make sure to give always the best lifestyle and quality for my family by depending only with coffee. Recently I bought a depulper, hoping that this would help me facilitate the process and have a better income for my family.
I want to keep growing more coffee and sell excellent quality coffee. I want to have a better lifestyle for my home and family that lives with me.”
Thank-you to Brendan and Patrick of Semilla Coffee for importing this fantastic coffee.
