“My farm is located in the La Montañita farmhouse, the La Palma Chalatenango tunnel, 6 years ago my father leased me 3 blocks in which I grew pacamara in one block, and in the other two Pacas, I took advantage of when the government began to give coffee plants to sow because I did not have money to buy because the Pacamara coffee store is expensive. I gave the name of the farm La Montañita because that's the name of the place.” Said by one of the few female coffee producers in the last year’s CoE coffee competition, Eugenia Nohemy Diaz Gutierrez.
