Maria Nancy Cuellar was born and raised around coffee – it’s always been part of her life.

She was raised with her parents producing coffee and she plans to raise her children the same way, by producing coffee. Maria Nancy and her husband decided to start investing in and producing specialty coffee for the wellbeing of their children.

For this couple, their children are the most important thing in their decisions. They named their farm Villa Sofía to honour their youngest child, and their only daughter. The extra income from producing specialty coffee helps Maria Nancy offer her children a good quality of life.

Maria Nancy and her husband Edwin work together on their farm, they divide the work and the farm activities, and both aim towards producing better coffee together.

“The production of specialty coffee can have drastic changes in one’s lives. But these are positive changes. Yes, we need more time, it’s more work, more attention to detail in every single part of the process, but the work definitely pays off.” says Maria Nancy.

She is deeply proud everything on her farm, but mainly, she is proud that although is small, it has produced great coffee and it has allowed them to maintain their family in good economic terms.

The farm has a very pleasant location: it’s high, with a beautiful landscape, and it has a great weather. They plan to improve their post-harvest infrastructure soon for them to continue improving the quality of their crop.

Machines are used to remove the flesh from the coffee cherry before being fermented in water, washed again, and finally sun dried. This process tends to result in more distinct, cleaner flavours.
