  • Dear Maja:

    I find your travels and experience in the diverse coffee growing regions of the world very interesting. I am an Agronomist with 38 years of experience in growing coffee in the highlands of El Salvador, Central America. I am interested in learning about coffee growing in other countries and also what type of tax structure the different countries have. Nevertheless, I tend to be more interested in the growing or production side, I am inclined more towards having the vision of a Biologist than an Agronomist. I have subscribed to your letter. Many thanks. Joe Molina

    • Dear Joe, thank you for your comments and for the mutual coffee interest we share; it was by pure coincidence that I stumbled upon coffee many years ago but saw it as an opportunity to enhance my travel experience, but never could I have imagined just how much it would end up shaping my life. Agronomists or biologist, all comments are very welcome. Thanks for contributing and for subscribing, after a few technical delays, the first News Letter is coming up this week 🙂
