Today the project is 6 years old and coffee has become a real passion for Leopoldo and linking his daily life with the future of an agricultural activity is very enriching. With the help of a dedicated technical team, Leopoldo supervises all the processes and participates each year in numerous national and international coffee competitions. Its aim is to position Ecuador as a key player in specialty coffee.
As he puts it so well, he is very proud to have created a "coffee community" behind this project, his family, his teams, farm workers, local politicians ... All have been made aware of sustainable production. Leopoldo is very interested in market trends, the evolving tastes of amateurs around the world. It is for this reason that he innovates, develops new processes and seeks to differentiate his cups. His farm located in the Amazon rainforest offers him a haven of peace in which he wishes to produce high quality coffee while respecting this magical place, lung of the world.
