Coffee for Franco Alexis Garzón is not just a crop that he grows on his farm, it is a way of life. Coffee has allowed Franco Alexis and his family to improve the quality of their lives, and because of this Franco pays coffee back by taking very special care of his coffee trees and by making sure his farm infrastructure is in perfect condition.
