Coffee has always been a way of life for Patricia. She and her siblings grew up on her father’s farm, helping with the day to day activities. After he passed away, Patricia inherited a portion of his farm where she started El Plan twelve years ago.

Coming full circle, she now provides for her family with coffee production. However, current coffee prices make production at a profit difficult. Patricia sees an opportunity in our business model to make coffee production sustainable. With deep roots in the industry, she wants to see farmers succeed.
