Coffee is different from other crops, and that is why I move forward and give my son and grandson a positive example.

The Aráuz Rodriguez Family

Gregorio Bernardo Aráuz Zeledon is in the process of renovating his 8.6 acre coffee farm with the Better Coffee Harvest Project support. He farms coffee along with his son, Wender, and adult grandson, Wender Jr., and hopes one day that they will continue the family business. 

So far, the family is seeing results from what they have learned at the project’s trainings. For instance, Wender Jr. now knows how to prevent soil erosion by using a planting tool to draw contour lines in the ground.
