In his mid-fifties, Florencio might be the hardest working member of the diligent and much-revered Villatoro family. His lauded brothers include Aurelio Villatoro of COE winning Finca Villaure, Pedro Villatoro of the always sparkly Guayabales lots, Juan Villatoro of El Milagro and the eldest brother, Julian of the Los Olivos lots.
He started young, with a coffee nursery and small lot given by his father. He's been working earnestly since he was 13. At the age of 25 he was in a tragic car accident which damaged his leg, but he's continued working with support from his family: His wife Lesvia Marilú López and his 4 children, Maikel, Riner, Yelsin y Danita, and now his 5 grand children. Florencio has a great sense of humor, and like the rest of his family is kind and generous; a great host. He loves to watch soccer with the community, and spends a lot of time with his family.
