Elsa Gutmann Melo Betania Farm

In 1997 Doña Elsa decided to buy the farm and move to the countryside. At that time the farm had 20000 coffee plants, and she did not know much about coffee, but then she was invited to be part of a pilot project to grow organic coffee. During those years, slowly but with strong believes, she almost doubled the number of coffee plants in the farm.
She is making a positive difference in the region by generating work in the community.
