Orlando acquired El Placer from his father. His parents still live on the farm and working with coffee allows him to provide for the whole family. Orlando started cultivating coffee a long time ago and has learned from some mistakes along the way. Originally, he planted the caturra variety but was forced to switch to the castillo variety after leaf roast infested his plantation. Now, with a variety more resistant to  disease coupled with the opportunity to develop direct trade relationships, Orlando feels he has a very solid base. He is committed to improving quality year over year and hopes that will correlate to an improved quality of life for him and his family.
