Diego Samuel started with his coffee growing project Finca El Paraiso in 2008. To him growing coffee was fascinating, No one in his family grew coffee at that time. His family owned a farm that was isolated so Diego saw the opportunity to grow coffee there and after getting the permission of his family to start growing coffee while doing his studies on Agricultural Enterprise Management.
Selling his coffee to the local cooperatives allowed him to pay his studies and start evolving as coffee producer. After asking himself about why he couldn’t afford other things than his studies out of the coffee sold from his farm. He decides to start building a network going to different shows in different regions meeting people and realised that there were other ways to produce coffee in different qualities, from different varieties and submitting them to different contests.
