Arcangel de Jesus Restrepo Arroyave, 30, harvests coffee cherries from his plants. Arcangel, a father of two, is a fourth generation coffee producer. He has been a beneficiary of the septic tanks, compost plant, safety kit, school kits, and numerous workshops, including technical workshops on soil analysis and how to produce his own organic fertilizer.
He states: “The most important thing to improve in our community are the roads. We really suffer a lot because of our limited transportation means. But we also wish some of the Fair Trade premium was used to improve our homes, workshops on gender equality, and other technical activities. We are really just beginning our lives as parents and producers, so we are very concerned about improving things not just for the future generations, but also for us now. Please remember that behind every pound of coffee you buy, there is a long story of quality and families trying their best to get ahead in life. We make sure the coffee you drink is organic, fair trade certified, without chemicals, and in harmony with the environment.”
