Elvin is 37 and started working with coffee 4 years ago, when he began managing the land he rented from a friend. He came with the initiative of planting coffee, cause he felt it was a dignifying way to earn his living. He now manages two farms; El Letrero of 7 hectares, 2 planted with coffee and El Paraíso of 8 hectares, 3 planted with coffee.
Elvin has planted a total of 22,000 coffee trees of Catuai and Obata varieties. During the main harvest, from October to January, he hires five extra employees from the region who help him with the cherry-picking. Once they’ve collected all the cherries, they take them in sacks to the Creativa’s wet mill, to continue the process.
