Elias Gomez and his wife were both raised on coffee farms. They are raising their own two children to have a similar appreciation and dedication to coffee farming. Their attention to detail and strong work ethic is evident in this Fully washed lot.
as Gomez Muños grew up on a coffee farm and has been dedicated to coffee growing for as long as he can remember. He was proud to inherit a portion of his father’s farm and begin cultivating coffee there. However, he soon faced difficulties with his cultivation techniques, and he felt dismayed at his first years’ small yield.
Upon hearing his dilemma, his wife of many years, also a child of coffee farmers, suggested that he join a cooperative for technical training. Elias joined Coopagro in 2017 and has found it to be a continuous learning experience.
“Coopagro helped us grow and believe in ourselves,” Elias says. “The technical assistance provided us with the knowledge and tools necessary to get a good coffee and get a good price in the market.”
Today, Elias sends his children to school in a nearby city. He feels it is important to inspire his children to continue coffee growing, which he feels that now, more than ever, can be a viable livelihood.
“My farm is growing. My family’s quality of life has improved. In my community, we strive to get quality coffee. We take care of our flora and fauna. We spread our coffee pride because this has to pass from generation to generation.”
