Most of their coffee is Bourbon, but they are looking to expand their farms with exotic varieties. Most of their farms have been recently renovated with healthy young trees resulting in a stable production and better quality every year.
They work together with the communities and schools. Always making sure to help provide them with opportunities of self improvement. They are constantly providing food, hygiene products, clothing, show supplies, medical assessment and medicines.
