"Felicano Troquez expressed his happiness that we were able to see how they live. He takes pride in their organization because they care so much for mother earth in all they do. He says that coffee is just a plant and that as indigenous people they care for everything, like the water, the land and each coffee plant because it is all part of the earth. They need to care for it because no one else will. He said: 'We can only provide for ourselves. If we use chemicals, we won't see any goodness.'"
