Coffee has always been well-known in the department of Nariño. However, in Tablón de Gómez coffee production is relatively new due to the historical presence of guerilla groups over the past few decades. Tablón de Gómez is a very small community nestled in the Macizo Colombiano, with a strong indigenous culture. Since his early years, Edmundo has always been interested in coffee and its production, he loves the product, and he dreamed of becoming a coffee producer one day. And this is his reality today. Edmundo produces coffee since 2010 with his wife Anayda, with whom he makes a perfect team. Emundo is responsible for overseeing all the processes carried out on the farm, make sure that they are done, not only with attention to detail, but protecting the environment. Anayda, on the other hand, takes care of the house activities and she keeps records and accounting of the farm costs and incomes. What makes Edmundo most proud about his farm is that every single process is done carefully to take care of the environment and conserve the flora and fauna and their ecosystem. He treats his coffee trees with organic fertilizers. Edmundo, would love to be able to teach to other coffee producers everything that he has learned along the way, because he believes that other growers deserve to learn about the production of specialty coffee and have better incomes and being more profitable
