Beginning

I worked in a coffee exporter performing management activities with coffee inventories. That is how I got involved in cupping, which ever since called my attention and subsequently became my priority.

 
1993
Small Producers Coffee Quality Improvement Program

I had the opportunity to work in the Small Producers Coffee Quality Improvement Program, implemented by USAID and Anacafé. This platform allowed me to relate the cupping quality control in the field and wet processing. I enriched my experience in the sensory area, and linked desirable cupping characteristics or unwanted flavors with the wet beneficio practices.
