Produced on a tiny family farm run by husband and wife team, Santos and Teresa. Santos is full of personality, the life of the party,and unrelentingly good-natured. He, Teresa and their 12 children love showing their farm to roasters and inviting them to taste their very sweet oranges, mandarins, jocote, lemons, and bananas. They even have a small waterfall and swimming hole. With increased income from working with Gold Mountain Coffee Growers, they are able to prevent diseases from affecting their coffee, buy better clothes for their children, and save a small amount of money in case of medical expenses. Gold Mountain connected them to the electrical grid for the first time.
