From our importer:
"Eulogio comes from a lineage of coffee producers – his grandfather and father were producers. In the 1970s, his parents lost all their coffee plants to a rust attack. Yoyo (as he is more commonly known) was obviously discouraged from coffee farming seeing what his family had gone through, but fortunately was given the opportunity to work for a nonfamily coffee farmer who was very successful and taught him that coffee can be an economically sustainable crop.
Yoyo bought his farm I 1990 and from the beginning he was determined to make a better life for himself and own his family than his family had been able to accomplish through coffee farming. He loves the crop itself, he loves the taste of good quality coffee, and enjoys meeting coffee roasters and the fact that his lots are constantly entering new markets of coffee drinkers.
His hard work at persistence has paid off in many ways, not least of which includes his winning the top spot at Cup of Excellence 2015."
