Osmer has been a member of Alpes Andinos since 2021. From the start, producers belonging to the association have benefited greatly, as not only can members receive a higher price for quality products, but also can attend training sessions on topics such as how to make their plots more productive. This drive to develop better coffee is one promoted by the association, believing that producing great quality, leads to producer empowerment and wider benefits for all coffee families.
Originally a mechanic, Osmer transitioned to coffee farming in 2020 with the hit of the pandemic. He joined Alpes Andinos with hopes to maintain a sustainable livelihood. His farm is named El Cedrillo after the wood tree that grows in his farm.
