Risking all of their savings, Marco Oviedo faced a terrifying truth. His family coffee farm could not survive if they continued to operate as they had for the prior two generations.
Marcos and his wife decided to build a micro mill. With more control of the processing and production chain, they can yield the best possible quality. Marcos found a way to improve their production and cupping scores so they could sell coffee at a fair price and save the family farm.
