Ramon has lived at Los Meneses since the time it was impossible to grow coffee about 40 years ago, it was very cold at the time Ramon recalls. As time progressed and temperature started to warm up, they were able to start cultivating coffee.

At 2,200 meters los Meneses is in the clouds. This has allowed Ramon Morales to still have healthy and productive Caturra trees at his farm. He also have F4 varietal. 

They also produce potatoes, cilantro, celery, yuca.

Ramon the biggest step towards improve the quality of his coffee is to improve his drying facility.
