On the farm, Juan and his wife Christine taught their daughters to ride horses and growing up there, the girls have inherited a passion for farming and coffee. This is the place where they have celebrated baptisms, first communions, birthdays, and weddings. For the family, this farm holds all their sentimental history and this special environment is where the coffee grows.
About Juan Vergara
Being so close to the city and where he works, Juan can easily get away to the farm. He loves to work in his coffee garden and every time he goes, he learns something new about agriculture. For Juan, a coffee bean is like a grape, necessary for good wine, if you process and treat it well, you will achieve a great product. He strongly believes that each coffee tree has a dierent personality and that you must pay close attention to each one of them. Every morning Juan drinks a cup of his own coffee, only made better when he can do it on the farm and enjoy the view of the tree that grew it.
