Celia Condori bought El Cielo (The Sky) in 2011. The farm was offered for sale from one of her colleagues at Agricafe where Celia used to work. She is now a full-time coffee farmer with two farms and is part of Agricafe's Sol de Mañana program. The program provides agricultural and market assistance to farmers in the Caranavi region with the aim to provide farmers with agronomy training and help increase the quantity and quality of coffee from this area. The coffee industry is struggling in Bolivia with commodity prices much lower than more lucrative and problematic crops. Agricafe is helping to increase the quality of the coffee from these farms which in turn command much higher prices on the international market. During this latest harvest, Celia has found it difficult to find workers to help her due to the restrictions and lockdowns and has had to do most of the picking herself, which made for extraordinarily long days, getting up early to get the coffee in, packed up, and in the car to deliver to the Buena Vista beneficio in time for processing.
