Nelsy is the daughter of a family of coffee growers. After suffering severe setbacks in production quantity due to coffee leaf rust she focused her efforts on inter-cropping, exclusively organic matter fertilizing, and meticulous harvesting. She has recently focused her efforts at her farm on higher quality varietals, re-planting her 1.7 acre farm with Pacas and Catuai varietals. Pacas and Catuai are more susceptible to leaf rust, however, with Nelsy's new farming technique's she is confident she will improve quality while keeping production up.
