A farm with 12,000 coffee trees planted in a 4 hectares land. As a long- term coffee grower, don Antonio has become a crops expert. One year ago, he was offered to take over El Placer. Since then, Antonio has applied his 40 years of coffee experience to take care of the plants and produce the perfect coffee cherry.
