Pedro Sagastume owns and manages a 25 acre farm called Los Quetzales, named after the quetzal birds that visit the farm. Pedro bought the land thirty years ago and decided to plant coffee. Now Pedro’s adult children are continuing their father's legacy with a focus on quality. Two years ago the family started producing specialty coffee using their own micro-mill to process harvested cherries, which allows for meticulous care in depulping, fermenting, and drying the coffee. Their plans for the future include planting avocadoes trees as a way to diversify their income. Pedro started specialty coffee Pedro and his family collaborate with an exporting company called Beneficio San Vicente to gain access to technical support for best agricultural practices. The partnership has helped to improve quality, increase earnings from coffee sales, and strengthen the family’s livelihood.
