Maximo Rupay has been producing coffee since 2013. Before this, he used to produce all types of beans on the farm. However, they were not very proﬁtable.
Maximo started searching for other options to grow on the farm, something that would bring better economic conditions for the family. He realized that coffee was a very popular product in the region. In his research, he learned that coffee had better commercial opportunities compared to other products. In that moment, Maximo decided to replace the bean production for just coffee. This transformation has generated lots of income and positive changes, not only to his family, but to the whole region of Jaen.
Maximo works together with his father, mother, and brothers. They decided to start producing specialty coffee two years after embarking on their coffee journey when they realized that they liked the product so much, that they wanted to learn more. In the short term, the Rupay Family plans to renovate the varieties and grow only traditional ones and improve their drying infrastructure.
