Nerves, excitement, gratitude and honour, were some of the sentiments expressed by the Zamora Calvo family, who received in their home China’s president Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan.

Xi had requested a visit to a “typical” Costa Rican farmer family home.

The Zamora Calvo live in San Miguel de Santo Domingo de Heredia, where the leader of a wold power and a humble Costa Rican farmer and their wives shares a cup of “yodo”.  ( Yodo – literally means iodine but in Costa Rica it can mean “coffee”)

Marco Tulio Zamora and Ruth Calvo have been married for 52 years, have five children and have dedicated the entire lives to coffee farming, a business that Marco Tulio inherited from his father and grandfather.

After the coffee session, Xi, who comes from humble farming roots, left with the promise to help small Costa Rican producers export to China.
