I am at the beginning stages of setting up a coffee processing plant on the farm and buying coffee from local farmers. I am in need of urgent help as the harvest is now in progress and I still have a lot of work to do. The farm looks over the main town and transportation is a 10min drive and 30min walk into main plaza. The farm is also a working dairy farm with fresh milk and eggs every morning.

Mario a local farmer is always on site attending to the farm and milking of the cows is every day. You will visit the local coffee farms with me to meet the coffee farmers and help in any way we can.
