It is remarquable how the owners of the Filadelfia Coffee Estate are doing everything possible to keep the tradition of coffee making alive and at the highest quality levels even considering lower coffee prices and higher salaries and better living conditions for the pickers who usually gather around december, january and february to assist in the picking of the coffee beans. Many other family estates have stopped picking the coffee beans because it is too expensive and there is no profit left for the owners - so many have turned into residential real estate developments leaving the poor locals completely out of any economic income whatsoever, one of the reason that there are many poor and that they have lost all their traditions.
