Javier Carrascal Reyes is 65 years old and lives on his 15-hectare farm with his wife, Carmen Emira Saravia Blanco, and their eight children. Javier has been working with coffee for 22 years and has always seen it as a sustainable plant, with the ability to offer financial security for himself and his family. Javier currently has two hectares planted with Castillo coffee trees, and the rest of the property is dedicated to the cultivation of vegetables for their consumption and forest, making it quite the biodiverse and green space. He truly relishes life on the farm and would never consider leaving. He says life there is rich, with everything one needs at their fingertips, and that it is a privilege to live on such fruitful land.
